Apple has published a QuickTime movie of Apple CEO Steve Jobs' music-product announcements.

The company is offering the entire announcement in MPEG-4 format on its Web site.

Reaction to the announcements has been massive, with reports available on almost every media outlet.

Writing for, Arik Hesseldahl called Apple's currently US-only iTunes Music Store: "Enormously easy to use and dangerously addictive."

He added: "Apple's musical moves look like the right ones. We have to wonder why no one else had thought to make digital music services so straightforward and easy - and above all, legal."

Wall Street welcomed Apple's move. The company's stock rose 1.44 per cent yesterday, reaching $14.06. Apple stock rose on the day of the announcement from its previous close of $13.35 to $13.86.
