EDIT: Never mind, I just re-read the rules. Its 3 am lol, give me a break. Countdown is still incorrect though. I just added a webclip of it and it isnt even in sync with the one in safari... Its hard to win if the counter they base it off isn't even correct lol.

Ok, so wait for a second here. Who will be the winner? I posted this at like 1am last night, so maybe I'm wrong about who's winning.
Is the billionth downloader the winner? Or are they having a random drawing from the people that have downloaded since yesterday to the billionth download?

Does anyone care?
The chances of wining will be so slim anything you do will have no effect.
They will announce a winner who none of us will have heard of and I'll be very happy for them.

And there are probably 100 worth a damn, but nonetheless great going Apple.

Why don't we all read the rules so we can all be clear on how the winner is chosen:
Apple - iTunes - 1 Billion App Countdown - Rules
It is a bit confusing, though. It says the winner here:
The prize will be awarded for the entry (either through an app download or through the non-purchase online entry) sent immediately following the download of the 999,999,999th app. The potential winner will be determined by the order of the entries received.
