Apple has started their 1 Billion Song Countdown! Win an iPod nano every 100,000 Songs.

The grand prize for downloading the 1 Billionth song is:
20-inch iMac
10 60GB iPods
$10,000 iTunes Music Card
full-ride scholarship in your name to a world-renowned music school

Link

Cool....just to make it clear, you don't get the scholarship, rather, the it will be the "YourNameHere Full Ride Scholarship to WorldRenownedMusicSchool" or something like that. I'm liking the awards at every 100,000 song marker too.

wow 10 60 gig iPods. That's a good prize for apple because it gets the ipod in the hands of more people but I think they could have done a much better prize.

It would be cool if they gave you a new ipod every revision for the next 10 revisions.

Man that's too bad, I was really hoping the scholarship counted my school as a world renowned music school, I could definitely use some tuition money.
Don't be down adk - you could always win your namesake scholarship in it's inaugural year!

10 iPods?!?!? Holy crap. You could make a lot of money off of that selling them to people.

I was thinking of getting my friend in the States to send me over some more gift cards last night, just sent him an email asking for a $20 card :D

That would be awesome to win, could you imagine that iTunes Music Store credit...

Amazing how the offer does actually make me want to buy some songs. It's always interesting when gimmicks actually work, at least when they work on me. Ah well, new music is good. :cool:

That sucks, I really wanted to use the voucher to buy Lost Season 2. I guess i can get a few episodes of that and save some of the credit for tracks.

Yes they are. From the official rules.

the 1 billionth song won't be publicly announced right? imagine if it is a really "dumb" song...
It was last time (500,000 Song). If I remember correctly it was "Mississippi Girl" by Faith Hill.
