Apple iTunes Now #1 Music Store In America

According to research by the NPD Group, the research firm that tracks U.S. music sales, these are the top selling music stores in America, by percent of overall sales:

iTunes Store 19 percent
Wal-Mart (stores and online) 15 percent
Best Buy 13 percent
Amazon 6 percent
Target 6 percent

The death of the CD is upon us. Recently a friend gave me an iTunes gift card as a birthday present–I’m still using it as a bookmark! I’m sure I’ll get around to using it, but I’ve since bought albums at Soundgarden, including one I had to special order. I’m a Boomer Luddite–my technology, my music.
