Incidentally, Apple claims to be selling 1.8 million tunes/day over the iTunes Music Store. I make that something like 6 terabytes/day. Woah.

Oh, and the quality of the H264 stream of The Steve’s presentation today is stunning, at least over 2M/bit ADSL. Well worth tuning into for a spectacularly awkward iChat with Madonna, and the new iTunes 5, which looks uncannily like NetNewsWire.
