There have been rumors about the Beatles showing up on iTunes for download ever since iTunes premiered. But while it always seems about to happen, it never quite happens. Now it appears that it's not about to happen after all.
Ono says "there is just an element we're not happy about, as people." No details on what that element is (iPhone 4 antenna?).
Paul McCartney has been similarly cryptic about vague issues with Apple Computer in the past. The roots of the conflict have always been in the nomenclature: the band had started Apple Recordings and then this guy Steve Jobs comes along and takes their name. Of course, you can Alta Vista the phrase "Beatles downloads" and get a lot of options.
