I was curious so I decided to work hard on simple math! err... :)
500,000 songs per week.
71428 song per day
2976 songs per hour
49 songs per minute
about 1 song every second and a third or so.

Thank you for your time :)

Let's just hope its new owner doesn't want to sell it someday... ;)

Well, I can tell you that Apple didn't sell one track to me, and probably never will. Until of course they give me the full un-compressed version that I can do whatever I wish with. Of course for $.99 :)

I would even buy from them if they would reduce the price.. I don't get any artwork.. I don't get anything like that.. plus lots of restrictions, etc etc.. sell it to me for $.50.. I just might.. sell it to me for less.. I most likely would.
