Apple iTunes sells 1m videos in 20 days
Apple has sold more thana million videos through its iTunes music store in thefirst 20 days after launching the service, the company has reported.

"Selling a million videos in less than 20 days strongly suggests that thereis a market for legal video downloads," said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs.

"Our next challenge is to broaden our content offerings so that customers can enjoy watching more videos on their computers and new iPods."

Not hard enough, moaned female customer
A mail-order porn video outfit has been stung for £4,000 by Dorking magistrates for failing to measure up in the hard-core department, the Mirror reports. Pabo Ltd was fined the four grand plus £2,044 costs and ordered to pay £75 compensation to a female customer who moaned that explicit rumpy-pumpy on the covers of three videos she'd bought did not appear in the final, censored cut.

Of the unnamed smut aficionado, Surrey County Council said: "The company had not shown any interest in the consumer's complaint, so the purchaser turned to Trading Standards." Peter Denard of Trading Standards added: "Consumers are often embarrassed to complain about purchases such as these and companies take advantage of them."

Have a great day
