Jobs: Beatles to iTunes...

... next year?

At CES a couple of years ago, John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono told me that the Beatles would be available online someday. Today I got to ask Apple CEO Steve Jobs about that.

"We'd love to have the Beatles on iTunes," he said. "I think it will happen next year." When I asked if he really believed that, Jobs said, "I'm an optimist."

"The Beatles and EMI have some differences to work out. Once (they do), iTunes is the first place they'd want to be and we'd welcome them with open arms."
