The Apple news just doesn't seem to want to stop at the moment. This time it's the announcement that its iTunes stores worldwide have sold a combined total of 250million tracks.

In fact the stores are selling so many tracks that the daily downloads from the service are now in excess of 1.25 million songs per day, which if you do the sums is an annual amount of almost half a billion songs per year.

Steve Jobs, CEO at Apple said,

"When we launched the iTunes Music Store we were hoping to sell a million songs in the first six months, now we're selling over a million songs every day, and we've sold over a quarter billion songs in total."
