CNet’s News.com blog reports that Paul McCartney has given his go ahead to make the Beatle's song catalog available on Apple’s iTunes in the coming months.
Britain’s Telegraph reports that the deal could be worth $600 million.

With McCartney's current divorce settlement still in negotiations, he may need the cash.
David Pogue, Mac enthusiast and columnist for the New York Times, recently posted some tech support stories in his column. Here's an example....
On one call, the caller seemed to be taking an inordinately long time to complete each instruction she was given.
Agent: Ma’am, I can’t help noticing that every time I give you an instruction, it takes a really long time before you get back to me. Is your computer that slow?
Caller: Oh, no, it’s just the stupid, stupid design of this computer. Every time I want to click something, I have to unplug the keyboard to plug in the mouse. And then every time I want to use the keyboard again, I have to unplug the mouse. Because there’s only one jack.
Agent: Ma’am, you do realize that there’s a jack on the keyboard itself? You’re supposed to plug the mouse into the keyboard, and the keyboard into the computer.
Caller: Are YOU KIDDING ME!? Oh, wait a minute—yes, I see it now! Oh, holy cow. That’s going to be so much easier!
Agent: Just out of curiosity, how long have you been using your computer that way?
Caller: Six weeks!
