    congrats you lil bastard.
    Holy **** that's like right by me. I live in Stamford (the place where that Chimp attacked that lady)

    Man, what's a 13 year old going to do with $10,000 dollars for iTunes.

    Edit: If you live in Weston you got plenty of money already, most people there can buy all that crap he got without a second though.

    Ok. I never thought I'd really win anyway, but that really pissed me off how Apple chose the person who downloaded the billionth app. Like someone said before, what WAS the point of the entries and up to 25 a day at that? Apple sucks for that. At least I HAD a chance when it was supposed to just be random.

    Another reason why I hate Apple. Why does the iPhone have to be so great?
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    If I didn't, press it anyway.

    No, the chances of any of us wining were so slight as to not be worth worrying about. At least it was some kid who will probably make use of the prize.

    But I agree with your last question, it would be a lot easier if they made cr*p phones

    They did post the rule and it was clear. The billionth app downloaded, or the entry immediately following the 999, 999, 999th app downloaded would be the winner. In the case where there were simultaneous entries/downloads of the billionth app, the winner would be picked randomly from those simultaneous entries/downloads.

    They did post the rules, but they certainly weren't clear! Not that it makes any difference
