Ever since their inception, the Beatles took the world by storm and certainly need no form of introduction even to the majority of younger crowds worldwide today. Once again they're in the limelight having chosen to offer their music collection in non DRM form on media outside of the usual compact disc; this being a Limited Edition USB Stick.
The Limited Edition USB Stick carries the entire LP collection of the British band in a stereo mix along with the mini-documentaries, album art and liner notes from the remastered CDs. Significantly, all of the songs come both in unprotected 320Kbps MP3 as well as in a similarly unguarded, lossless FLAC and should work on most any computer or portable player.
The drive itself is Apple Records-themed with 16GB capacity. 30,000 are said to be shipping out as of December 8 for $280, with pre-orders beginning today.
