Music Math from business2blog

Number of songs sold on iTunes in the past three years: 850 million.

Number of songs traded on P2P file-sharing networks during the same time: 90 billion

850 million iTunes songs/ 42 million iPods = 20 songs/ iPod.

Over three years that comes to people spending an average of $7 a year on music at the iTunes store.

This is from the business2blog – and is very interesting. My husband has an iPod and probably hasn’t even bought 20 songs (I think it’s more like 15) – he raided our CD collection and burned them all onto his iPod so that he could listen to more than one CD at a time in the car.
