McDonald's isn't the only company claiming "billions served." The iTunes store has now sold over 25 billion songs.

Here we are looking at the final weeks of yet another year. While plenty of media outlets are pushing out best-of lists for 2012, Apple has today announced its own picks for the best movies, App Store games, music, and even podcasts in the iTunes store.

Despite being a month late, iTunes 11 didn’t disappoint. Version 11 has been completely overhauled, reimagined from the ground up, and we love the new features.

The new interface is a huge change from the old iTunes look and feel, but we can help you get comfortable in no time. Kick off your shoes and settle into your new digital living room. And don’t forget to turn your speakers up.
Well, if you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of iTunes 11, the moment has finally arrived. Packed full of interesting new interface tweaks and increased iCloud support, the new iTunes is a welcome site for a service that was showing its age.
