Record company EMI Group PLC said Sunday it planned to unveil "an exciting new digital offering" with computer company Apple Inc., raising expectations that The Beatles' music catalog is about to be made available through Apple's iTunes online music store.
Or maybe not??

Apple Inc. and music label EMI Group Plc plan to announce "an exciting new digital offering," EMI said on Sunday, renewing speculation of a deal to put the Beatles music catalog online.

However, a source familiar with the situation said a Beatles deal would not be featured at the event on Monday. "There is no Beatles' announcement," the source said.
And I guess we also have to remember that it's April 1...

Well, it wasn't a joke after all.

Apple announced today that the entire EMI catalog would be available via iTMS in a new "high rez" NON-DRMed! audio encoding at $1.29 a song. And all current owners have to do is pay the difference to upgrade their old songs.

And yep, the Beatles (and Stones) catalogs appear to be included.
