The 50 Greatest Moments in Apple History

45. The Beatles Come to iTunes

Year: 2010

To many, the arrival of the Beatles was anticlimactic. "So, what?" many asked, wondering what was so significant about the boys from Britain coming to the world's largest digital music store front. Well, considering the fact that the Beatles are the most technology averse band in history-it was one of the last groups to have its music transferred to compact disc-it was a big deal. Then take in mind that the Beatles is the best-selling musical group in history and combine it with the fact that you can only legally buy its music from one online store-iTunes-and you'll see why it was such an enormous get. If you still don't get it, just know it was one of Steve Jobs's favorite bands.
