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:
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."
