Rumors that Apple will launch a European version of its iTunes Music Store (iTMS) this summer spread in earnest this week, this just two weeks after Napster rolled out its competing service in the UK. While Apple declined to confirm any European iTMS moves, the region is clearly important to the company. According to its SEC filings for fiscal second quarter 2004, Europe accounted for $449 million of Apple's net sales, a 33 percent increase over the same period in 2003. The filing also reports increased demand in all of its products, except for the iMac.

Apple's doing extremely well here in the states.
If the theory of digital music as a loss leader
has anything to do with Apple's triple revenue growth,then every corporation in the world needs to acquire a internet based musical software library--just follow the leader.If you're not computer savvy Loudeye will give you a one stop set-up less the cost.And this sort of competition is what Steve's i Tunes will be facing once he enters his play in Europe--A host of players:Sonyconnect,OD2,Realnetworks,Napster-Samsung just to name a few. Apple may not be able to dominate but will be able to substantiate a decent market share--hell. . .Apple is that kind of company empire. Thanks for listening to the Spoken X Talk Show:"Sound of Literati" witness the powerful experience of the spoken word Xplosion!: Digizarr,Music is Here,Viztas Digital MarketPlace,SonyConnect,CatchMusic,PureTracks,
RuleRadio,Weedshare and Apple i Tunes. Peace!

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
