Despite initial speculation that today’s joint announcement by EMI and Apple would be the availability of the Beatles music catalog on iTunes, no such announcement was made by the two companies. While today’s media event focused on DRM-free music, a reporter was quick to ask in the ending Q&A session whether a Beatles deal was on the way, Apple CEO Steve Jobs replied, “I want to know that, too.” EMI Group CEO Eric Nicoli stressed that “we’re working on it” and said he hopes the Beatles songs will be available online soon. The last report on the subject claimed that the Beatles’ music catalog would soon be offered online, but that it would not be available exclusively from the iTunes Store.
