iTunes reaches 10 billion download milestone

Less than seven years after its debut on April 28, 2003, iTunes has reached the download milestone of 10 billion songs. Graphics placed on Apple.com’s homepage, the iTunes “Countdown to 10 Billion Songs” contest page, and on the iTunes Store itself proclaim the achievement, which also marks the end of the related contest. In its “Countdown to 10 Billion Songs” promotion, Apple was offering a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card to the person who downloaded the 10-billionth song; the winner has yet to be announced. Coincidentally, the milestone was achieved today, February 24, 2010, which also marks Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ 55th birthday.
