Jobs: no plans to change
Steve Jobs said he has the iTunes Music Store to address upcoming competitive stores from Wal-Mart, Sony, and Microsoft, according to the USA Today. 'We're going to continue on our winning strategy'...Nor does Jobs plan to let iTunes customers use portable digital music players made by other companies. Today, customers can download songs to nearly any PC but need Apple's iPod if they want a portable player. "Our strategy is to support the No. 1 MP3 player in the market," Jobs says. iPod has 50% market share, researcher NPD Group says. Jobs also said that half of iTunes sales are entire albums, not individual songs."
