    Hey guys,
    anyone see this in iTunes it has a counter of how many apps are downloaded, and if you download any app between now and the time it reaches 1 billion downloads your entered in a contest to win a Macbook, 32 gig Touch, $10,000 iTunes card, and a wireless hard drive, you can enter 25 times per day so if you download 26 or more apps in one day your only entered 25 times, lot of free apps are gonna be downloaded for sure, probably won't be too long before they hit 1 billion.

    I'm going to win fer sure. $10,000 iTunes card = endless apps for life. :)

    I could use a macbook too. If I win (which I will), then I will start developing.

    I wouldn't mind any of the prizes. However, I have never won anything. I hope it is going to be the first time:)

    You need to stalk me?
    I'm hoping for $10000 itunes GC as well.

    I'm hoping to sell them for Visa GC's so I can get a MacBook pro and a new car.

    The possibility of any of us winning? Very, very, very close to zero. But hey, it's still possible, right?

    " One (1) winner will receive one (1) 17” MacBook Pro; one (1) iPod Touch 32GB; one (1) $10,000 iTunes Gift Certificate; and an Apple Time Capsule. Total Retail Value of all prizes is $13,746." Wait... one winner gets all? (per country?)

    Also... does updating apps count?
