One very oddly written contest rules page

Read the second sentence of the last paragraph. Now read the bold paragraph where it states who wins the 20GB iPods.

so i guess that means that free weekly downloads are eligible to enter but not to win?

ok…so why would anyone buy a song right now then?

They should’ve waited until reaching the 95 mark before announcing this.

The Apple counter is going up every few minutes, so people haven’t stopped buying :)

They must realize the chances of winning are so small they need not worry about it.

This doesn’t make sense to me.  Any other business that gives away prizes to it’s n-th customer, doesn’t post how many customers they’ve had so far.  If you do, people like myself, won’t buy anything until other people get the counter close.  I think there will be slow business until the counter gets close to a 100,000 mark, and then people’ll buy a lot, and then stop again and wait.  Maybe it’ll all even out in the end, but I doubt it.

^900 mil, wtf?  Apple is counting up to 100 million…but I agree that it would be nice if the counter refreshed more often. ARRGH.
