    You could gift songs etc to them I guess?

    Its a pointless question however, as I'm going to win it!

    iTunes gift card is a joke. Now an Apple gift card (to use in the Apple Retail Store) would really be worth something.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    I put together a quick site converting the Apple count-up into a relevant count-down to when the 10 billionth app will be downloaded: Apple - iTunes - 10 Billion App Countdown

    I added a screenshot below just in case

    I believe at one of the recent Apple special events they announced the number of apps that are downloaded every second. It was a bit over 100 if i remember correctly which seems to be about the same speed that this counter is going at.
    God Bless

    The counter isn't truly real-time. What happens is that there's a data file that gets updated hourly or so, and it contains the app-purchase-rate at the moment, and the current time. A script then puts two and two together to show you a counter. The download rate seems to be increasing; just watch the timer I put up a couple posts back, it jumps a few hours every time the data file gets updated

    Apple - iTunes celebrates 10 billion songs downloaded.
    Is the picture caption on the author's post real?
    Less than a day and yet the magical 10 bill number was reached.

    Default wow
    ive read every post on here and i cant believe that the wording on the page hasnt erked anyone else, "Download the 10 billionth app, and you could win a US $10,000 iTunes Gift Card.". if you actually go in and read the fine print it goes on to say that there is a 9.999.999.999 time period in which apps can be downloaded.
    there even a way to enter the contest b4 then just click enter without perchuse or download, those of you actually doing this are wasteing ur time....(better chance 4 me )
