Nielsen SoundScan released figures that show an increase in legal music downloads from 55 million in the first half of 2004 to nearly 159 million in the same period in 2005. While the number of downloads has tripled, actual sales for the industry have decreased by two and a half percent so far this year. This drop is being blamed on weak album sales, but analysts are cautious, suggesting it is still too soon to tell if this trend will hold up through the holiday season. The data also shows single-song downloads account for six percent of total sales, compared to less than two percent last year.

Apple released iTunes 4.9, the latest version of their popular music management software for PC and Mac this past Tuesday. The most noticeable change comes in the form of podcast support that lets users select podcasts as a source of music, along with their libraries, radio and iTunes music store. Podcasting is the idea of a content provider, like an Internet radio station, a newspaper or news channel, sending content directly to your MP3 device. The iPod is the king of portable music storage and, when sitting in its doc overnight, it can automatically load itself with a truly impressive array of content. Podcasters enjoy morning commutes and afternoon workouts with the entire Wall Street Journal or unique Beatles performances right on their iPods.
