Apple announced today that it will be holding an iTunes Music Store Anniversary Conference Call this Wednesday, April 28 at 11:30 a.m. ET. Apple CEO Steve Jobs will update media and industry analysts on the iTunes Music Store one year after its launch.
I wonder if they met Steve's goal of 100 million downloads within a year. The beginning of the month they were just slightly past the half-way mark. Not sure if the Pepi iTunes giveaway was or was not supposed to be included. Estimates are in the neighborhood of 30 - 40 million and they (the iTMS) were selling about 2.5 - 3 million downloads a week.
No matter if the goal was reached, IMMHO, the iTMS is a huge success and its competitors will have to come correct if they want to succeed alongside, let alone, topple this music giant.
