Apple iTunes…over 5 billion served

Steve Jobs must be smiling all the way to the bank as he can’t seem to do any wrong – phenomenal sales of the iPod, killer iPhone figures, and now the latest statistics that will further swell his bank account – the iTunes marketplace has just broken the magical 5 billion sales figure. And to think that iTunes started just 5 years ago. I believe it is the solid marketing arm of Apple that really kickstarted everything into where they are today, in addition to a great MP3 player (back then – the iPod is now a portable media player for the uninitiated). Of course, album cover art like the one you see on the right might help, but that is far from the main factor. Here’s to another 5 billion (and more), Apple. Now make iTunes available in each country already!
