A lot of Apple Money

Whenever you set up a new iPhone, Apple kindly adds a playlist to it that references all of the music you’ve purchased from iTunes in the past. Let’s do some quick math, shall we. Let’s say that that the average price per song is $1.15 (remember songs used to be $0.99, before jumping to $1.29).

That means I’ve spent $1,764.10 on iTunes music. I’ll let that sink in a bit. Just on music. Keep in mind what that doesn’t include: apps, movies, books, ringtones, etc.
