New Nano, Cheaper Shuffles & Countdown to One Billion At The iTMS

Not too long after introducing a 1GB iPod nano for $149 (and lowering prices on the sturdy shuffle line -- the 512MB is now $69 and it's bigger sister 1GB version is now only $99), Apple announces a new contest to celebrate:

Apple's iTunes Billion Songs Countdown

We've got one billion reasons to celebrate, and we're starting with you. As we mark our way to one billion, the music fans who download every 100,000th song will receive a prize package featuring a black 4GB iPod nano and a $100 iTunes Music Card.

And if you're the lucky grand-prize winner who downloads the billionth song from the iTunes Music Store, you'll receive a 20-inch iMac, 10 60GB iPods, and a $10,000 iTunes Music Card to jumpstart your digital music collection.

I've made two purchases so far, with maybe a dozen more purchases to come. More on that tomorrow.

Of course, I'm a bit disappointed that Pepsi didn't air a new commercial for us to "Drink Pepsi, Win Music."

What planet am I on? How come I haven't heard about this promotion?! Posted by: :: jozjozjoz :: on February 11, 2006 10:20 PM
Forget the late notice, get to downloading now!! Well, if that's your thang. I downloaded a couple songs I've been meaning to get, but I ain't a part of the going-broke for an extremely slim chance of winning some cool sh*t crowd.
