As predicted, Apple hype was all about The Beatles

It all turned out to be very uneventful: Apple's iTunes store will now carry The Beatles music, some forty years after the band released its last LP. Oh well, sucked into Apple's PR machine once again!
One senses this is definitely a personal triumph for their biggest fan, Steve Jobs, because the text description used by Apple in iTunes is incredibly long, wordy . . . well, you can read it here. (One question: does anyone not already own all the Beatles music they would want?)

OK, Apple is now selling The Beatles LPs on iTunes. Now, can we please get that long promised iPad OS update? The latest word is that the update won't show up until the day before Thanksgiving. It better not be buggy or else a lot of Apple engineers will be working the holiday.
