One Million Downloads and Counting

The iTunes music store is doing huge business!

Apple Computer’s new online music service sold more than 1 million songs during its first week of operation, the company said Monday.

The early sales success suggests that people will pay for music downloads if given the chance, analysts say. “It clearly shows there was some pent-up demand in the Mac community for a legal way to buy and download digital music,” Jupiter Research analyst Michael Gartenberg said.

On Tuesday, Apple plans to add 3,200 new tracks to the music store, including Michelle Branch’s album “The Spirit Room” and the catalog of music from Alanis Morissette.

I’ve told a bunch of friends about this, and they all say the same thing: **Someone finally got it right!*’. One friend actually told me that this seals the deal… ‘*his next computer will be a Mac!**. That’s right folks, Apple continues to do things the way they ought to be done!
