I was amazed when the announced that figure. Reply 2 of 28 bauman Posts: 1,248member January 8, 2004 1:42PM They better up the limit on iTunes Libraries. Last I heard they peter out at 30000 for no apparent reason. I think this guy has hit the ceiling (with albums and such), and if they want the money to keep coming in, they better up the ante.

Reply 14 of 28 kenneth Posts: 832member January 8, 2004 8:18PM Read this article/interview.A Microsoft-Friendlier MacworldQuote:"A REAL WARMTH."_ And what about Jobs's own feelings for Gates? They've mellowed as well. He talked to the Microsoft honcho last summer, he says, but they're both too busy with kids to stay in touch more often. When Apple (AAPL ) unveiled a version of its iTunes music player to work with Windows last fall, Jobs sent Gates a $200 gift certificate to try it out. "I'd set him up with a monthly allowance, but he doesn't need it," Jobs joked in an interview with BusinessWeek at the time. He never heard back from Gates, but there's no hard feelings.hehe.. Steve.. please hook me up with the monthly allowance. Reply 15 of 28 mount_my_floppy Posts: 913member January 8, 2004 8:21PM He did mention that it was a kid didn't he?

Reply 18 of 28 jante99 Posts: 539member January 8, 2004 9:51PM Clearly I missed something not watching the keynote. What would one do with 30,000 songs? It would take forever to listen to them all.

It would take forever to listen to them all. maybe some person bought 10k copies of their 3 favorite songs, so they could put them up on kazaa or gnutella, and not have to worry about the riaa. ("you illegally redistributed this song." "no i didn't. i own 10 thousand legitimate licenses. here's my bank statement.")

It would take forever to listen to them all. Because 90,000 minutes or 2 months is FOREVER. I can listen to 1500 hours worth of songs in a couple years, especially if I have an ipod I am constantly listening to. «12» Sign In or Register to comment.
