    As of today, nearly 10 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store worldwide. Which is almost as amazing as the apps themselves. So Apple wants to say thanks. Download the 10 billionth app, and you could win a US $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. Just visit the App Store, and download what could be your best app yet, but wait for the counter to reach the mark !!!

    Remember how we told you Gail Davis (above) had won that once-in-a-life-time $10,000 iTunes gift certificate, in celebration of the App Store hitting 10 Billion downloads?
    Well, turns out when Apple called to give her said voucher, she hung up. Not intentionally, you understand. See, Gail thought the Apple representative was another one of those telemarketers from those dreaded call centers, trying to sell her double-glazing or weight-loss treatment.
    Luckily for Gail, her daughter was clued into what she had done. Upon trying to call back, an Apple representative reportedly shrugged her off. Thankfully, Eddy Cue, the VP of iTunes, got involved and Gail and family are now $10,000 richer.

    If I had won I would have traded that card in for something better. Maybe a top of the line iMac and a Macbook Pro Combo.

    Sucks that it is limited to music and videos only. :(

    $10000 worth of music and videos? What a crappy prize. Why not a $10000 Apple giftcard or something actually useful.
