It's not iTunes, but Apple Corps and EMI are finally offering a legit way to grab digital Beatles tracks. This Apple-shaped stick has FLAC and MP3 versions of the new CD set: all the band's music re-mastered in stereo.

FLAC quality is 44.1Khz 24 bit, and MP3 is 320 Kbps. Only 30,000 will be made, and it goes on sale November 8 for $280 (pre-orders are now live). The stick is $60 more than the CD set, but die-hard fans get "all of the re-mastered CDs' visual elements, including 13 mini-documentary films about the studio albums, replicated original UK album art, rare photos and expanded liner notes."

Why an apple?

Last time I checked The Beatles started recording songs far too early to have been Apple fanboys ;P

Maybe this is the remastered Mac edition? #thebeatlesappleusbstick
