By 2011 an important new business had emerged:
2011年,出现了一种重要的全新商业模式:
being the service that people trusted with their online identity and payment information.
iTunes商店成了这样一项服务:能把信任它的用户的在线身份和支付信息收集起来。
Along with Amazon, Visa, PayPal, American Express, and a few other services,
苹果与亚马逊、维萨信用卡、贝宝在线支付、美国运通银行,以及其他一些服务商进行合作,
Apple had built up databases of people who trusted them with their email address and credit card information to facilitate safe and easy shopping.
将信任它们的用户收录进数据库,里面包含了用户的邮箱地址和信用卡信息,方便他们以安全和便利的方式进行在线购买。
This allowed Apple to sell, for example, a magazine subscription through its online store;
除了音乐,苹果还可通过在线商店提供杂志订阅服务,
when that happened, Apple, not the magazine publisher, would have a direct relationship with the subscriber.
在订单达成之后,苹果将代替杂志出版商和订阅者建立直接的联系。
As the iTunes Store sold videos, apps, and subscriptions,
随着iTunes商店开始销售视频、应用程序和订阅服务,
it built up a database of 225 million active users by June 2011, which positioned Apple for the next age of digital commerce.
截止到2011年6月,该数据库中已有2.25亿活跃用户,把苹果带入了数字商业的新时代。
