Limited edition USB Apple contains stereo Beatles remasters
Giving new meaning to Apple(s) in Stereo:
The exquisitely crafted, apple-shaped USB drive is loaded with the critically acclaimed re-mastered audio for The Beatles’ 14 stereo titles, as well as all of the re-mastered CDs’ visual elements, including 13 mini-documentary films about the studio albums, replicated original UK album art, rare photos and expanded liner notes.
A specially designed Flash interface has been installed, and the 16GB USB’s audio and visual contents will be provided in FLAC 44.1 Khz 24 bit and MP3 320 Kbps formats, fully compatible with PC and Mac.
Order yours at the official Beatles Web site store. (When I posted this, however, there was no listing for the item in the U.S. version of the store, nor any price provided. You'll need to keep checking back there.)
Additional info from the Beatles Examiner:
EMI Music announced Tuesday they will release a limited edition of 30,000 Beatles stereo USB apples on Dec. 7 in most of the world, except North America, where they will be available Dec. 8. A price on the drive was not available.
