iTunes Breaks the 1 Billion Mark.

Yes that is Billion with a B everyone. The special page set up @ Apple reads..

Music lovers like you in 21 countries around the globe have purchased one billion songs from the iTunes Music Store. And for helping us reach this massive milestone in digital music history, we’d like to thank you.

There you have it, truly a milestone in the legal music download arena. Now you may be wondering, what was the grand prize for that lucky person who downloaded the 1 Billionth song? Well...

The prize for the billionth song purchased:

iMac, iPod and iTunes Gift Card

  • One 20-inch iMac

  • Ten 60GB iPods (5 white/5 black) (F'ing crazy...)
  • One U.S. $10,000 iTunes Music Card (good for any media type) (F'ing crazy... X 2)

Not to shabby at all uh? Well if you are the lucky winner and you are reading this, congrats.

Seeing how profitable the iTunes Store has become, I wonder how hard would it be to set up an international store. I wouldn't be surprised if the biggest hurdle are the greedy record labels. Oh well... iTunes Music Store Argentina...maybe?
