iTunes sales target
More than 50 million songs have been bought from Apple's iTunes music store, but the number is that Apple set itself last year, observes BBC News. It launched its online music store for Mac users in April 2003 and expanded it to Windows users in October. Apple is the leading player in online music but it faces increasing competition from others seeking a slice of the market for digital downloads. The iTunes store is currently only available in the U.S., but will be available internationally later this year.
