I’m sure Apple in its wildest dreams never imagined that iTunes would be the runaway hit that it is. As the iTunes Music Store heads toward download number 1 billion, Apple has 1 billion reasons to celebrate. And to mark the way, music fans who download every 100,000th song will receive a prize package featuring a black 4GB iPod nano and a $100 iTunes Music Card.
But that’s not all. If you feel lucky (you do feel lucky, don’t you?), then the music fan who downloads the 1 billionth song from the iTunes Music Store will receive a 20-inch iMac, not one iPod, but 10 60GB iPods as well as a $10,000 iTunes Music Card to jumpstart your digital music collection. In addition, Apple will create a full-ride scholarship in your name to a world-renowned music school. Just think: You could help launch the careers of an entire generation of musicians.
At 999 million and counting …
Hey, anybody care to take a guess at what that 1 billionth song will be?
