iTunes overwhelmed by online shoppers

According to CNNmoney, “Swarms of online shoppers armed with new iPods and iTunes gift cards apparently overwhelmed Apple’s iTunes music store over the holiday, prompting error messages and slowdowns of 20 minutes or more for downloads of a single song.”

The article later stated that “the interruption could be viewed as a sign that sales dramatically exceeded the Cupertino-based company’s own forecasts.” Wouldn’t there be some indication by the number of iTunes cards and iPods that were purchased over the holidays. Or, maybe it’s just me.

“‘The store itself was working, there was just too much traffic..'” Not a bad problem to have. Not bad at all.
