November 13 - The Beatles launch their official website

On this day, 10 years ago, The Beatles launched their first official website: The website was unveiled on the same day the group released their compilation "1" album, which featured 27 Beatles songs that went #1. The album sold over $31 million copies.

The website itself is quite cool with Beatles songs playing on repeat, memorabilia, and an archive of all the vintage Beatles music videos. Unfortunately you can't hear any of their solo work, but then again, that is to be expected!

Today, The Beatles' music is not available through digital download from iTunes or Napster. They are among a handful of major artists who do not allow for their music to be sold through digital download.
