Apple's iTunes Store today reached 10 billion music downloads since its inception in 2003, and along with the milestone comes the end of the company's "Countdown to 10 Billion Songs" promotion. The winner of the promotion, who is yet to be announced, will be awarded a $10,000 iTunes Store gift card.




iTunes Store Music Download Growth Since Launch
The milestone is being featured prominently on Apple's main page, iTunes page, and the iTunes Store, among other locations. Unfortunately, the banner on Apple's front page currently contains a typo in noting "10 billions songs".

LOL 'billions' *evil finger to lip*.

Pretty cool, although is this based on only the counter getting to 10b? If I recall the one for 1b apps got there a little bit before reality caught up.

I'll admit it. After reading that it would probably be today, I went and bought a song earlier today. :p

Oh well, it was something I was planning on buying anyway.
