CUPERTINO, California—December 15, 2003—Apple® today announced that music fans have purchased and downloaded more than 25 million songs from Apple’s iTunes® Music Store since it launched in April 2003. The 25 millionth song, purchased last Friday afternoon, was “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” by Frank Sinatra.
Apple also announced that over $1 million of iTunes online gift certificates and allowances have been purchased since the features were added to the iTunes Music Store on October 16, 2003.
My question to the world is this: Is anybody else making any money off of ala cart music downloads, besides APPLE???? If they are, why isn’t anybody making a big deal about it??? I think Apple’s iTunes has truly found a niche in the market and is here to stay, thank to the iPod.
