“ will unveil a new music download service next Tuesday with a $40 million promotional campaign and launch celebration in New York’s Times Square.

I wonder what apple’s response to this will be.  Will they ramp up delivery date for the Window’s iTunes?  I hope so.  I’ve told all my windows friends how great the iTunes Music Store is…and how they should “switch.”  I hope I didn’t shoot myself in the foot.
