Apple today announced that more than two billion songs, 50 million television episodes and over 1.3 million feature-length films have been purchased and downloaded from the iTunes: "iTunes has crossed another major milestone by selling over two billion songs -- with over a billion of them sold in the last year alone -- making it by far the world's most popular music store," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "And by selling 50 million TV shows and over 1.3 million movies to date, iTunes is already the largest online video store in the world as well." The iTunes Store now features the world's largest catalog with over four million songs, 250 feature films, 350 television shows and over 100,000 podcasts. Beginning today, iTunes has added more than 100 movies from Paramount Pictures priced at just $9.99 including "School of Rock," "The Italian Job," "Mean Girls," "Zoolander," "Coach Carter," "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life," "Chinatown" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
