As reported earlier today, Apple has sold 50 million songs through its iTunes Music Store. However, the number is far below its goal of selling 100 million songs by April. (Apple said the 50 million figure excludes the undisclosed number songs downloaded through the Pepsi giveaway.) “Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the goal of distributing 100 million songs in Oct.—including those given away in the Pepsi promotion—when the company expanded the iTunes Music Store to work with Windows-based computers,” CNET reports. “Apple reiterated the goal in Dec. when it announced that it had sold 25 million songs by that point. While not disputing that it is well short of its April goal, Apple did note that iTunes users are now downloading 2.5 million songs per week, which means the company is now selling songs at a rate of 130 million per year.”
