Yoko Ono tells world "you go on ahead without us"

Seemingly convinced anyone really cares, Yoko Ono has given an update on how negotiations between Apple and The Beatles are going:

"Steve Jobs has his own idea and he's a brilliant guy," Ono, the 77-year-old widow of John Lennon, told Reuters. "There's just an element that we're not very happy about, as people. We are holding out.

"Don't hold your breath ... for anything," she said with a laugh.
I suspect Steve Jobs' brilliant idea might be that they get the tracks onto iTunes and start making some money while there are still two people who might want digital Beatles who haven't already ripped a copy or torrented them down.

I'm amazed they've managed to hold on this long - you've got to admire their resolve though!

Says the woman who licensed "Instant Karma" for a Chase Bank commercial.

@Anonymous: I suspect that had he lived, Lennon would have licenced his own tracks in a way that would make even Sting blush. By the way, is Mbop a contestant in some sort of online Turing test?
