iTunes Music Store Sells 100 Millionth Song

Send Article to a Friend

iTunes Music Store Sells 100 Millionth Song -- Apple's iTunes Music Store sold its 100 millionth song on Sunday, 11-Jul-04, to 20-year old Kevin Britten of Hays, Kansas, making Kevin the winner of a 17-inch PowerBook, a 40 GB iPod, a 10,000-song iTunes Music Store gift certificate, and the opportunity to create his own celebrity playlist in the iTunes Music Store. Apple also gave away 20 GB iPods to the purchaser of each 100,000th song between 95 and 100 million songs sold: the names of 22 winners (and the songs they purchased) are on Apple's Web site. The 100 millionth song sale is a notable milestone for Apple, which says it now controls more than 70 percent of legal downloads for albums and singles. For the time being, the iTunes Music Store's future looks rosy: although it hasn't always met Steve Jobs' optimistic sales forecasting, more than a year after its debut it has yet to face serious competition.
