Apple has sold its 100 millionth song from the iTunes Store.
Kevin Britten of Hays, Kansas downloaded Somersault (Dangermouse remix) by Zero7; the 100 millionth song purchased from the iTunes music store. He will receive a 17-inch PowerBook, a 40GB iPod, and a gift certificate for 10,000 iTunes songs to create the ultimate music library for his new iPod.
In addition we awarded 50 special 20GB iPods — one to the purchaser of each 100,000th song downloaded between 95 million and 100 million songs.
Between the ease of use and the reasonable pricing, it’s no wonder iTunes is able to sell so many songs. As long as Apple can keep the record labels from messing with the pricing, they should be able to keep a good thing going.
