Well, no crazy stunts here with Apple’s one billionth download at the App Store. Just full-on jealousy, on my part.
Whoever hit the button on that landmark purchase — which took place just 9 months after the App Store launched — scored a booty of Apple gear, including a 17-inch MacBook Pro, a 32GB iPod touch, a $10,000 iTunes gift card and a Time Capsule. BoyGenius Report estimates that all those prizes are worth $13,746. (!)
The winning customer and the app s/he downloaded haven’t been announced yet. But if this follows the typical Lucky Lotto pattern, and the winner’s a senior citizen from Boca or my local fruit stand purveyor, I’ll know life truly isn’t fair.
And we can’t even enjoy watching the winner run around an Apple Store with a big supermarket shopping cart, grabbing stuff off the shelves.
