Second Generation Online Music Store Available Today for Mac & Windows Users

SAN FRANCISCO‹October 16, 2003‹Apple® today launched the second generation of its revolutionary iTunes® Music Store for both Mac® and Windows users. The new iTunes Music Store offers Windows users the same online music store that Mac users love (available in the US only) ‹with the same music catalogue, the same personal use rights and the same 99 cents-per-song pricing. Since its launch six months ago, music fans have purchased and downloaded more than 13 million songs from the iTunes Music Store, making it the number one download music service in the world. With music from all five major music companies and over 200 independent music labels, the iTunes Music Store catalogue is growing every day and will offer more than 400,000 songs by the end of October.

"The iTunes Music Store has revolutionised the way people legally buy music online, and now it's available to tens of millions more music lovers with iTunes for Windows," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "While our competitors haven't even come close to matching our first generation, we're already releasing the second generation of the iTunes Music Store for Mac and Windows."

Apple offers the unbeatable combination of the award-winning iTunes digital jukebox software, the pioneering iTunes Music Store and the market-leading iPod� digital music player, providing music lovers with a seamless experience for buying, managing and listening to their digital music collections anywhere. Windows iPod users can now use their iPod with the award-winning iTunes digital jukebox software and enjoy the best digital music experience on any platform. iTunes for Windows includes all the same great features that made it the best digital jukebox software for the Mac‹a free download with no hidden charges for extra features, MP3 and pristine quality AAC encoding from audio CDs, Smart Playlists, over 250 free Internet radio stations, and the ability to burn custom playlists to CDs and MP3 CDs, burn content to DVDs to back-up an entire music collection and share music between computers via Rendezvous� over any network, cross-platform.

Apple today also announced an online music alliance with America Online to provide instant, one-click registration to the iTunes Music Store for AOL's more than 25 million U.S. members starting later this quarter.

SAN FRANCISCO‹October 16, 2003‹Apple® today announced a free software update for iPod�, the world's most popular portable digital music player. The iPod software update adds support for new Belkin voice recording and photo storage accessories for dockable iPods, allowing users to record hundreds of hours of audio and store thousands of digital photos on their iPod. Available for both Mac® and Windows, the iPod software update also includes faster browsing and accessing of large music libraries, the ability to sync On-The-Go playlists back to iTunes® and a new Music Quiz game which tests a player's knowledge of their own iTunes music library.

"Apple's latest iPods have been a huge hit, becoming the most successful digital music players ever. With these new added features there are even more great reasons to get one," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.

This frees up valuable camera and memory card storage space so users can continue to take pictures without the hassle and expense of buying and carrying multiple memory cards. Once the iPod is connected to a Mac or Windows PC, the digital photos are easily transferred to a user's computer and photo editing software. With Mac OS® X, iPhoto� will automatically recognise the iPod as a media storage device and prompt users to transfer their photos into the iPhoto library‹just as if it were a camera, allowing users to erase the photos after transfer if desired. The ideal tool for professional photographers and people on vacation, Belkin's new Media Reader for iPod is the first third party iPod photo storage accessory. The Belkin Media Reader for iPod connects easily though iPod's dock connector and supports the five most common memory card formats‹CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, SD and MMC.
