  • App Store reaches 1,000,000,000

    The App Store is about to reach one billion (1,000,000,000!) app downloads, and Apple is making this sweet, by awarding the billionth app downloader with a 17" MacBook Pro, a 32GB iPod touch, a $10,000 (yes, $10,000!) iTunes gift card, and Time Capsule.
    All these items are worth over $13,000 put together! So your one app download of a few dollars, or even free of cost, can win you Apple products worth over $13,000.

      I read the rules and they are as clear as mud.
      Entries can be made between 10/04/09 and the billionth download (that's an American Billion, not a real one)but then it goes on to say about the foone after the billionth download etc.
      Methinks it will be decided at random anyway - probably a friend of the person organising it as a relation is to close.
      I wouldn't get your hopes up!

      So do I.

      One day you will grow up enough to realise that stealling apps is not big and it's not clever.

      Okay so just so no one is confused. It's not the person the downloads the 1,000,000,000th app. You go to that page and sign up and you can sign up a limit of 25 times a day. And Apple will randomly choose someone when the 1,000,000,000th app is downloaded and that person is one lucky son of a b****. lol

      If you download the same app you are not buying it again.
      But it will make such an infinitesimal difference it's not worth doing.
