iTunes Go Boom!

I noticed today that many ‘Net sources are reporting that the iTunes store was a bit overwhelmed with the successful delivery of soooo many iPods on Christmas.

I can tell you that it was true. My niece was trying hard to use her shiny new iTunes gift card to load music on her shiny new iPod nano. Alas, there was no joy in Podville. After many attempts, she was unable to get logged in to use her card.

I’m sure things are starting to quieten down, and the iTunes store is getting back to normal, but it sure makes the recent rumors about the death of iTunes a little premature!
