iTunes, Napster most recognized in digital music

Apple’s iTunes Music Store and Napster 2.0 are the most recognized online music services, according to a new study from global marketing research firm Ipsos-Insight. “New findings from TEMPO, the company’s quarterly study of digital music behaviors, reveal that in summer 2004, American downloaders aged 12 and older were equally as likely to be aware of Napster 2.0 and Apple’s iTunes on a top-of-mind basis (20% each). However, when prompted with brand names, about four out of five (79%) downloaders recognize the Napster 2.0 brand, while nearly half (46%) are aware of iTunes.”

(But were 79% really aware of the “2.0” product or just Napster in general?)

Sure, everyone’s heard of Napster, but who would admit to using Napster 2.0?

I love that there are people who earn a living wage researching the obvious.

Next they’ll be saying that air is the most used element.

^ Maybe you were being sarcastic, but air isn’t an element. It’s a mixture of a bunch of different gasses, including the element Oxygen.

ALihin…..  I stand corrected.  After I made that post I realized my egregious error.

But you should also consider the fact that I reside in NJ.  There are a LOT of elements in our air.
