He will replace Tom Robbins, who is retiring from his post. Dan Portnoy has more than 30 years of experience in the field.

Apple is now third-largest music retailer in U.S.
iTunes—Apple, Inc.'s digital music store—has risen to become the third-largest music retailer store in the United States. iTunes now commands nearly a 10% market share in the music industry. Digital music has picked up in the United States at the same time as CD sales have gone down. Currently, the top two music stores in the country are Wal-Mart and Best Buy. Amazon has lagged behind the top three in spite of posting an increase in sales. Apple's music store has also benefited from the sales of its proprietary digital music player iPod and its complementary premium music service iTunes Plus, which sells higher-quality digital songs without copy protection at reasonable prices.
