Can Microsoft Beat iTunes With a Store of Its Own?
With the opening on Thursday, Microsoft will land itself in a market that Apple Computer pioneered more than a year ago with its iTunes online music store, in much the same way that it took on Netscape in the Web browser business and Sony in the market for console game machines. As a storefront on the MSN online service, Microsoft's music service will offer song tracks for downloading to personal computers and portable music players.
Granted, the market for online music today is tiny, accounting for less than 2 percent of all music sales in the United States. Even five years from now, online sales are expected to account for 12 percent of a $1.7 billion domestic market.
"For Microsoft, it's like Slate, not Xbox," said David Card, research director of Jupiter Research, referring to Microsoft's foray into online magazine publishing, which is considered a tiny business within the company. "It's a pretty small opportunity right now."
