Apple, Inc. Vs Apple Corps - who cares?

So Apple and Apple have come to an arrangement.

Why did they have to fight in the first place? Apple (Computer) could so easily sell its music stuff under the brand name of "iTunes" (i.e, drop the Company's name altogether) which is probably better-known than the name "Apple" anyway.

And woo-hoo, people will now be able to buy Beatles music to stick on their MP3 players. They've been able to do that for years, they're called CDs. (And there's no pesky Digital Rights Manglement on MP3s you rip yourself.)

On another note, I'm probably going to buy my first MP3 player this week; Aldi is selling one for $70... I hope it handles WMA files.
