This week, Apple announced 3 Billion App Store Downloads. Perhaps this is the reason: Highly regarded technology columnist for New York Times, David Pogue, channels Britney Spears in a humorous musical spoof of “Oops! I did it again.” A great parody on about the addictive Apple App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.

Using his Apple laptop as his music score book / tele prompter, David Pogue goes on the piano and gave a sublime performance as part of his keynote address at the Interop IT Expo New York 2009 business technology conference.

He’s no Alicia Keys but Pogue’s performance is equally entertaining.

Sounds like he uses his Apple iPhone occasionally…

David Pogue has graciously provided to OP Editor the lyrics and his music score notations for “Apps! I Did it Again!” Check it out on the next page.

Apple App Store Industry Leading 3 Billion Downloads

Apple App Store opened on July 10, 2008. It quickly surpassed competitor products which contain over-half-decade of unrefined work produced by number of technology giants including Microsoft, Nokia, Research in Motion, Palm, Motorola, Android (Android as a company has existed for over half a decade), and others.

AApple CEO Steve Jobs BWpple’s App Store has established itself as the benchmark of mobile application delivery. Here is Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs talking about the competition:

“Three billion applications downloaded in less than 18 months—this is like nothing we’ve ever seen before,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon.”

The App Store for iPhone and iPod touch has apps in 20 categories, including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel. (Plus iFart and a few “interesting” fringe apps).
