On April 28, 2003, Apple threw open the virtual doors to its iTunes Store, and music -- all digital media, really -- hasn't been the same since.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The answer to the trivia question will be: "Monkey Drums (Goskel Vancin Remix) by Chase Buch." That's the 25 billionth song purchased on iTunes.
Apple announced the sales milestone in a news release Wednesday.
The company says Phillip Lupke of Germany purchased and downloaded Buch's song and will receive an iTunes gift card worth 10,000 euros, or about $13, 500.
It took the Cupertino, Calif., company 12 years to reach the milestone.
Customers download an average of 15,000 songs a minute on iTunes, which was launched in January 2001.
The digital retailer's catalog is 26 million songs deep.
