Disney announced that it sold 4 million movies and between 40 to 50 million videos on iTunes since 2006. That's huge, right? Not really. In fact, analysts expect those numbers to amount to just $123 million ($1.44 earned per video, $14.50 per movie); pennies in comparison to Disney's $35 billion in annual sales. In fact, it's roughly 10% of the $1 billion in digital revenue Disney hopes to achieve this year. A clear reminder, dear readers, of just how Type-A we really are. The typical Wal-mart noob still doesn't download their video and music -- hell, they can't even figure out Linux.
