Apple takes the crown as #1 music retailer



Since it was launched several years ago, the iTunes music store has been slowly taking over as the place to buy music. Finally, Apple has announced that they edged out Walmart in January, making them the number one seller of music in the US.

It was less than a year ago that Apple beat out Amazon to become to the number three music retailer, so I’d say that they’ve been making excellent headway. For those wondering about exact numbers, Apple accounted for 19 percent of music sales, while Walmart took in 15 percent, and Best Buy had only 13 percent of the sales.

I know that all of my music comes from iTunes these days. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I actually bought a CD.
