WSJ Spills the Beans: The Beatles are Coming Tomorrow

With this morning’s announcement on Apple’s website about tomorrow being a “day you’ll never forget,” there has been lots of speculation what is coming. The Wall Street Journal, with their excellent “sources” have confidently announced that tomorrow will be about The Beatles coming to iTunes.

Apple Inc. is preparing to announce that its iTunes Store will soon start carrying music by the Beatles, according to people familiar with the situation, a move that would fill in a glaring gap in the collection of the world’s largest music retailer.

The deal resulted from talks that were taking place as recently as last week among executives of Apple, representatives of the Beatles and their record label, EMI Group Ltd,, according to these people. These people cautioned that Apple could change plans at the last minute.

In other speculation about what is coming, MacRumors reported that they did receive an unconfirmed tip about the Beatles coming to iTunes, but such tips weren’t uncommon.
