Beatles USB
Released on December 9, £200 device will contain all the albums in stereo, plus additional content

No, the Beatles back catalogue still isn't on iTunes, but from December 9 you'll be able to buy the whole recent re-release on a USB stick, complete with Apple-shaped holder.

30,000 of the USB versions are being made, selling for £200 – considerably more than the CD set, which is currently available for around £150 in the stereo version, or £170 in mono.

The core content of the the stick, which pulls out of the apple by its 'stalk', is the entire remastered-in-stereo 14-disc set, in both 44.1kHz/24-bit FLAC and 320kbps MP3 versions – no, not Apple Lossless!

You also get 13 mini-documentaries about the albums, orginal UK album art, photos and extended sleeve-notes.

The 16MB device also features a specially designed Flash interface, is compatible with both PCs and Macs, and is available for pre-order now at The Beatles' online shop.
