Did Pepsi buy 500,000 iVideo’s and is going to run another contest? Did Steve Job buy all the video’s??? How do they fudge there numbers? I understand last time when iTunes came out they fudged them by having the pepsi contest (they claimed they sold a million iTunes in 1 day) but what now?

Even if these sales continue at this rate, it’s only $38 million a year, which in music & video sales is not that much actually. Keep in mind people Apple doesn’t profit off of this, the music companies do. Every penny Apple gets off of these sales (and it is pennies) is to pay their employees, hardware nad bandwidth. There’s no pocket money here for Apple, that’s where the iPods come in :slight_smile:
