The big news starts to spread among millions of rock fans across the world that the Beatles has finally arrived on iTunes after “a long and winding road” described by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, the giant maker of the Macintosh computer, the iPod, iPhone and iPad.
It is reported that all 13 Beatles studio albums — from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” to “Abbey Road” to “Revolver” to “The White Album” are for sale on iTunes — 12.99 dollars for a single album and 19.99 dollars for a double album. Fans can also purchase individual songs for 1.29 dollars each.
Although the heyday of the Beatles is gone, the fact that “Let It Be,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Blackbird,” “In My Life,” “With a Little Help From My Friends” and “Come Together” all quickly cracked the top 100 list also proves the paramount position of the Beatles at present.
If you have an iPod (or iPhone, iPad), you can purchase and download favorite songs of the Beatles on iTunes Store directly.
However, some iPod owners may have bought many DVDs of the Beatles before. So, spending much more money in purchasing those music from iTunes does not make sense. However, you can also reach the same destination via the help of a Windows OS-friendly DVD to iPod converter (or Mac DVD to iPod converter designed for Mac OS).
This converter not only convert DVD to MP3, AAC, WMA and other audio formats, but support to convert to MP4 video file for movie entertainment with excellent quality. Moreover, you can also trim and crop the contents of DVD and add watermark to the output video files.
Comparing both of methods above, purchasing and downloading is easy but costly; downloading and installing a DVD to iPod converter (or Mac DVD to iPod converter is once for all.
In addition, some people choose to download the unlicensed songs of the Beatles from peer-to-peer file-sharing networks or internet download sites. To this, I do not stand up for the unauthorized tracks.
Just like Roger Faxon, the CEO of EMI Group (the record label of the Beatles), called the arrival of the Beatles on iTunes a “great milestone in the development of digital music,” let enjoy those classic music of the Beatles to our hearts content.
