iTunes Music Store turns three

Apple launched the iTunes Music Store three years ago today on April 28, 2003. The store launched with over 200,000 songs and “groundbreaking personal use rights.” In addition to expanding the store to 20 other countries, Apple’s U.S. iTunes Music Store now offers over 2.9 million songs, 60,000 podcasts, 9,000 music videos, and over 70 television programs from ABC, NBC, CBS, HBO, MTV, ESPN and Showtime. More than 1 billion songs have been sold to date.

Happy, B-day ITMS.  Is easy to forget that before iTunes all there was available was applications like Napter.  Thanks Apple for giving us the alternative, there is some of us who like to download music legally. Wish you many more years.
