Apple announced last week that it’s sales via the iTunes online store has topped the three billion mark – even if you count that its only a US billion (1000 x 1 million, the UK billion is a million millions), that's a pretty hefty number. "We'd like to thank all of our customers who have contributed to this incredible milestone" said Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of iTunes. Well Eddy, that’s one heck of a lot of music distributed at a pretty low-grade (128kbps) MP3 encoding, you must be very proud. Of course, the new iTunes Plus feature goes some way to addressing that - with a whopping 256kbps quality (whoohoo!) and DRM free tunes - naturally, it does cost more. Boy, I'm a bit grumpy today, but to be fair, iTunes is a great application and makes purchasing online tunes incredibly easy - I'm just narked that it’s quality has been so poor for so long. So, raise a glass or something and celebrate with Apple - or perhaps try and get hold of some stock....
