Apple has knocked it out of the park again. According to the consumer electronics company, users have downloaded more than 60 million programs for the iPhone in recent weeks. 60 million downloads!

If sales continue at this pace, they could reach $350 to $500 million per year in the very near future. According to The Wall Street Journal, even Steve Jobs was impressed. “I’ve never seen anything like it in my career in software,” he said.

Which brings up a good point — Apple isn’t just about the Mac, the iPod or the iPhone. It’s about a phenomenal user-interface and a software development process that’s unmatched by Microsoft, Google or any other developer.

Congratulations, Apple. You’ve hit a grand slam.
