iTunes Sets a New Record for Song Downloads

Apple's iTunes Music Store has set another major record for the digital music market. The iTunes Store has surpassed 25 billion songs sold. According to the numbers, Apple is selling 21 million songs a day via iTunes.

NPD Group reports that iTunes accounted for 69% of all digital music sales in the United States during 2012. Apple has 29% of the overall music market versus digital and physical formats selling more music than both Walmart and Target. Apple is making serious money off its iTunes business according to estimates.

The iTunes business including sales of Apple Care warranties and other services generated slightly less than $3.7 billion in revenue for Apple's quarter ending December 29. That is a 22% increase from the same quarter the previous year and the $3.7 billion is only Apple's cut. Gross sales were significantly higher when you figure in the portion of sales that go to developers, record labels, and musicians.

A tech fan’s confession: I actually regret helping Amazon kill off bookstores

I'm not normally one to weep over obsolete business models. I can't bring myself to fret too much about the Internet strangling the life out of print newspapers, video rental stores or CD shops, largely because I've found that what's replaced them (online journalism, Netflix and iTunes) offers much better value than the old way of doing things. And when the Internet eventually kills off cable TV, I will positively do a dance of joy in the streets. That said, there is one ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
