iTunes Downloads: 100M Movies, 450M TV Episodes, 35M Books, 11.7B Songs

Another interesting tidbit from the Apple event today. Jobs said that People have downloaded over 11.7 billion songs from iTunes, with the 12 billion mark approaching in the near future.

Jobs also said over 450 million TV episodes, 100 million movies, and 35 million books have been downloaded. People have created over 160 million accounts with credit cards and 1-click shopping in 23 countries.

The numbers are enormous but not particularly surprising. Clearly, iTunes is seeing major traction amongst users. Apple also revealed a new version of iTunes, and a music-focused social network Ping.
