In statement provided to MacMinute, Apple makes it clear what the score is in the digital music industry. “The iTunes Music Store is currently selling over 16 million songs per month (a rate of 200 million songs per year),” Apple said. “How many songs will Microsoft’s new online music store sell during its first month? Compared to iTunes, Microsoft’s music store currently offers only half the songs and is missing many features, but its biggest problem may be that its downloaded songs do not play on iPod, iPod mini, or the Apple iPod from HP — the world’s most popular digital music players with over 50% market share.”
