Let me focus on something that deserves a lot more attention: the upcoming Apple App Store, a new online Apple store that will post and sell third party software applications. And, if you believe iPhone's sales projections in the coming years, App could match or rival iTunes as a revenue stream down the road.
Advertising revenue from YouTube is likely to total about $200 million this year and thus fall short of parent company Google's expectations, The Wall Street Journal said on Tuesday, citing two sources familiar with the matter.
