Apple Says iTunes Is #1 US Music Retalier

Source: Apple

From the tooting your own horn department, Apple is claiming that iTunes is the number one music retailer in the US. The mandatory corporate blow job press release:

CUPERTINO, California—April 3, 2008—Apple® today announced that the iTunes® Store (www.itunes.com) surpassed Wal-Mart to become the number one music retailer in the US, based on the latest data from the NPD Group*. With over 50 million customers, iTunes has sold over four billion songs and features the world’s largest music catalog of over six million songs.

“We launched iTunes less than five years ago, and it has now become the number one music retailer in the world,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We are thrilled, and would like to thank all of our customers for helping us reach this incredible milestone.”

*Based on data from market research firm the NPD Group’s MusicWatch survey that captures consumer reported past week unit purchases and counts one CD representing 12 tracks, excluding wireless transactions. The iTunes Store became the largest music retailer in the US based on the amount of music sold during January and February 2008.

Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital media revolution with its iPod portable music and video players and iTunes online store, and has entered the mobile phone market with its revolutionary iPhone.


This press release would have been way cooler if it included a picture of Steve Jobs giving the finger to Myspace a la Johnny Cash.

thanks to i-tunes/i-pods/apple/WALMART/THE INTERNET

music is (in a way) dead!

I STILL REMEMBER WHEN I USE TO GO TO THE RECORD STORE AND BUY ALBUMS
)WHEN I WAS 7 YEARS OLD (BACK WHEN CASSETTES WERE HIP)
I USE TO LIKE THE ALBUM COVERS.
THE FEEL OF A RECORD STORE WAS LIKE MAGIC , BACK THEN PEOPLE THAT WORKED AT A RECORD STORE (LIKE TOWER RECORDS) KNEW AND ALSO LOVED AND APPRECIATED THE ART FORM OF MUSIC!
AND SINCE BACK THEN (LATE 80'S TO EARLY AND MID 90'S) ALBUMS/CASSETTES/CD'S COST MORE YOU HAD HAD LESS ALBUMS SO YOU Appreciated THE MUSIC MORE.




.......I STILL REMEMBER WAKING UP EARY ON A SATURDAY AND WALKING TO THE PARK THEN
GOING TO THE RECORD STORE WITH MY DAD BACK WHEN I WAS (ABOUT) 7 .
