    Next time don't title your thread "CNN: iTMS has 100% market share" since CNN made no such claim.

    So, about 84-85% marketshare, huh?

    Not too shabby.

    Actually, Apple had sold 30 million songs as of January 6th. At a clip rate of 2M songs per week, that meant about 28M last year.

    I think CNN just took Apple's numbers rather than actual sales from Soundscan, etc.
