BuyTunes!

This MacMinute article just about confirms the rumors of an upcoming new music downloading service from Apple.

The information comes straight from the LA Times, saying: "The new service was developed by Apple Computer Inc., sources said Monday, and offers users of Macintoshes and iPod portable music players many of the same capabilities that already are available from services previously endorsed by the labels. But the Apple offering won over music executives because it makes buying and downloading music as simple and non-technical as buying a book from Amazon.com."

One thing to consider... While iTunes 3 had hidden iLife features for quite a while, the kind of integration required for a completely new app, like one that would download music, will probably warrant the release of iTunes 4. Although, it's possible there is no new app, and this will be built in to iTunes 4...
