Apple prepares to give away $10,000 gift card for the 25 billionth App Store download
To commemorate the upcoming 25 billionth download from the App Store, Apple is offering to give a $10,000 App Store gift card to either the person who is responsible for the 25 billionth app download or the person who manages to send in the official entry form after the 24,999,999,999 app has been downloaded, but before the magic 25th billion has been selected. That seems like a tall order, but you can send in up to 25 entries a day. To send in the entry form, visit the sourcelink. Don't go by the counter on Apple's web site as that is for "illustrative purposes only".

The winner of the contest will receive a $10,000 App Store gift card which can be spent only in the App Store, at iTunes or the iBook store in the country where the winner is located. So if you were dreaming of winning and using the prize to buy a variety of Apple iPhones and Apple iPads, forget it. What the winner will have is an incredible selection of apps, books, music and video on his or her Apple mobile device.

To show you how fast the App Store has been growing, during December Apple said that the store had reached 18 billion downloads. In the begining of last year, the App Store celebrated its 10 billionth download while in September 2008, just two months after the store had launched, Apple counted 100 million downloads. It certainly has been quite a ride.

Another commercial trick to increase the amount of download, thus making even more money!

Haha that's not tracking real downloads it's a graphic and why did you feel the need to add that you're not an Apple user?

We beleive apple is losing market to android
we think that is the reason for price cut
we asked apple about it
they told us that they need to make more money
we beleive apple is in panic and scared ov android
we are not happy
we like that

10,000 buck gift card for Apps, music and books only. That will take a long time to spend. I bet the card has an expiration date.
