iTunes in Japan puts up big numbers
How the Japanese love them some iTunes. In just four days after Apple launched their iTunes Music Store in Japan, iTunes Japan has passed the 1 million downloads mark
. It took the iPod-filler service a week to reach those numbers here in the states. Seems like the fact that they are selling their audio wares 50 yen cheaper than everyone else might have something to do with it. Also mentioned in the article which I hadn't known about before is that the iTunes music service in the United States accounts for 82 percent of all legally downloaded music. Nice.
