Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Five McCartney albums are now apps for the Apple iPad
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was such a big fan of the Beatles, that he would have been happy to hear that five of Paul McCartney's albums are now available for purchase as apps for the Apple iPad. Such iconic albums as Band on the Run, McCartney, McCartney II, Ram and Wings over America can be purchased for $7.99.

The tracks come with pictures, videos, interviews and the remastered albums. And considering that most iTunes albums are priced at around $17, these McCartney records are priced at a bargain. Of course, listening to just one album per app could be a pain, especially if you're looking to mix some of the tunes on the five LPs..

The five McCartney albums involved contain some of Paul's most memorable post-Beatles songs including Band on the Run, Maybe I'm Amazed  (live and studio versions), and Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey. Back when Paul originally recorded these songs, hearing the word Apple instantly brought the Beatles' Apple Records to mind. Today, when you hear the word Apple, the Cupertino tech firm is your first thought.

Lol as if Apple had anything to do with the pricing of McCartney's albums.

Actually they do. They negotiate pricing with the record labels. On top of that, Apple could front the costs and give away the albums for free for a day, much like Google does.
