The Beatles Release Their Own "Seed"
The first high-profile "seed" to hit the market will be none other than the complete collection of Beatles studio albums, published in a lime-green sculpture of an apple and now available for sale in America just in time for Christmas.

Will this Beatles "seed" sell? It's gonna cost $280.

From the press release for the Beatles seed:

"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 contents will be provided in FLAC 44.1 Khz 24 bit and MP3 320 Kbps formats, fully compatible with PC and Mac."

The Beatles messed up here by making a dead sculpture instead of a living one. For instance, the $280 price tag ought to let you access an exclusive Beatles website that lets you get first-pick to new Beatles shit whenever you feel like updating. How else are you supposed to fill up the 16 gigs worth of space on this drive?

I guess this means that right now the Fiction Circus is better than the Beatles.
