The Beatles Finally Give In to Technology


The Beatles have been notoriously slow to adopt new technology and they've never upgraded the first-generation CDs they reluctantly issued in 1987. 

That all changes September 9 with the release of the Beatles Rock Band game, which comes with 45 Beatles songs and new animation supervised by George Harrison's son Dhani. Also on that date will be two new CD box sets that remaster the band's catalog, one box in stereo and the other finally releasing the original UK mono mixes taken from original master tapes.

There's still no word on a digital release through iTunes.
