When I saw this on the Apple homepage tuesday morning i had to do the math.  if you assume there are 30 days in each of those months, and do the math, that amounts to approximately 43 applications downloaded every second!

I never had doubts that the iTunes Appstore would be a hit, after all the itunes store has been selling tunes and videos and movies for a while and doing very well at it, but i am surprised they reached this milestone so fast.  I imagine the fact that so many of the apps downloaded are free helps with the overall numbers, but regardless, it looks like its another corner of the market being dominated by Apple, a corner of a market that didn’t exist until Apple created it so its only fair they do dominate it in my opinion.  Much like the way they changed the market with the introduction of the iPod, Steve and his cohorts have a way of creating trends and i for one can’t wait to see what the next big thing they bring to market will be.
