APPLE: 25 MILLION SONGS SOLD

That’s $25 Million Minus 25 Million Pennies
Apple announced that it has sold more than 25 million downloads from its iTunes Music Store since the launch in April. That milestone number was hit last Friday, with the purchase of Frank Sinatra’s version of “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” The song was purchased by a 14-year-old in Nebraska, who thought the song was free. Also, he thought he was downloading Linkin Park’s “Numb.”

The company is now selling 1.5 million songs per week, putting it on track to move 75 million per year. Before you get too jubilant, keep in mind that around  4 million people use Kazaa each week. Happy Holidays!

Said a dancing Apple CEO Steve Jobs, “With over 25 million songs purchased and downloaded to date, the iTunes Music Store is hands-down the most successful online music store. More importantly, we’re selling iPods. You should buy an iPod. If you don’t have an iPod, you’re a loser. Soon you will all have iPods. Then we can control all of your moves.”

In addition, Apple said that it has sold more than $1 million worth of iTunes gift certificates in the two months they have been available. There's nothing like unwrapping a gift certificate on Christmas morning.
