We jumped the gun on this one the other day, but it’s finally official, so break out the noise makers, throw up the confetti, and let the parties begin. Apple iTunes has reached its ten billion song download milestone today. For those that are counting, that is an astounding ten billion songs downloaded in a mere seven years of operation; nine billion of which have been downloaded since February 23, 2006, the date iTunes reached its one billionth song milestone and almost four years ago to the date. With Apple rumored to be moving iTunes to the cloud using the talent and technology it acquired in its recent Lala purchase, we can most likely assume this number to continue to climb at its astounding rate and in less than five years from now, we may be celebrating the 20th billion download.
