    no, it's not pure profit. most of the money goes to the artists and stuff. but still, 5 billion songs is amazing though.

    Unless it's 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% Razz

    That sure is a lot of songs though. But I'm afraid Apple is going to have a monopoly in the music market soon. That's not a good thing, Apple needs competition to get them to strive to come up with better products.

    Well I am pretty sure the percent is pretty good.

    Yeah, they might have one, but it seems there are still alot of competitors. I mean, they dont really compare that good to apple products but people are still buying those brands at least some of the time.

    apple has always said that they don't make much from the music store.

    and they do have some competition - Amazon has a music store i believe, and i think there are a few others
