Need a Reminder for the Countdown?

"Is that count down or count up? In either case, visit 10billionapps.com for an unofficial countdown to the likely moment that the 10 billionth app will be downloaded from Apple's App Store. The site is maintained in part by Top Drawer Apps, and features a "guesstimate" as to when the 10 billionth app will be downloaded, based on the current sales rates, among other things."

The time frame above was as of 4:30 pm Pacific time on Wednesday, January 19th. If you want a more current time table, you can visit the 10billionapps.com website. Then again, perhaps I should delete this post since I entered this contest also. Naw, the more the merrier right? Good luck if you did enter it, and if you haven't, why not? Someone has to win...

iTunes Hits Ten Billion Song Mark

"When Steve Jobs personally called Woodstock, Georgia native Louie Sulcer to tell him he'd won Apple's iTunes Store 10 Billion Song Sold contest, Sulcer first thought was that he was being pranked. "He called me and said, ‘This is Steve Jobs from Apple.' I said, ‘Yeah right,' " Sulcer tells Rolling Stone."

I don't blame him, I think I'd be a little hesitant to believe that Steve Jobs was calling me. Fitting choice for winning though, as the winner picked a Johnny Cash song called "Guess Things Happen That Way."

Countdown to 10 Billion Songs Contest From Apple

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"Apple today unveiled a "Countdown to 10 Billion Songs" promotion via the iTunes Store, offering the contest winner a prize of a $10,000 iTunes gift card. A counter on the main iTunes Store page and Apple's home page currently displays in excess of 9.8 billion downloads."

You can check out the rules here, but basically you can make up to 25 entries per day by purchasing/downloading songs from the iTunes store, or by filling out an entry form on Apple's web site. The contest ends once the 10 billionth song has been purchased/downloaded. It was in 2006 that they held the One Billion Song contest and so in approximately four years to achieve this level is pretty amazing.
