Wonder Warp Software Group has today announced the release of Nine Figures, a simple application which displays, in the menu bar, a constantly updated figure of the number of tracks sold on Apple’s iTunes Music Store. In addition to this, it displays the top ten most sold tracks on the store. The program, written by Steve Streza, may offer assistance to those set on winning Apple’s much coveted prize awarded to the buyer of the 100-millionth song. “Just promise you’ll let us use that PowerBook too,” jokes the group’s website.
I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
