Mix: iTunes winner, Toxins bill, Steve Jobs, PC case

Alex Ostrovsky, the winner of the iTunes billion song contest, has commented on his winnings. He says he will keep the iMac and an iPod, and give family and friends the remaining iPods. As for the $10,000 iTunes gift card, “My sister has already called from New York to talk about divvying it up,” he said.

A newly introduced California bill would require manufacturers to stop using hazardous materials in making cell phones, iPods and other battery-operated devices.

Apple co-founder and chief executive officer Steve Jobs turns 51 today. Jobs was born on February 24, 1955.

Logisys Computer has introduced a new computer case that resembles an iPod. The ePod Soho case is white and has “several buttons resembling those found on the scroll wheel of an Apple iPod, as well as a blue LED light that gives the case a constant backlit glow.”

P.S.: Doesn’t all of this coverage over the 16 year old winner remind you of Charlie and the Chocolate factory? I got the GOLDEN TICKET!

Doesn’t it seem ironic that the winner of the contest to buy the 500 millionth song got tickets and went backstage to see Coldplay (along with a bunch of free iPods) and the winner of this latest contest bought a Coldplay song??

Conspiracy theory? I’m kidding of course but it is ironic.

Congraltulations to all of the 500 iTunes winners.

iTunes available in 20 Countries outside U.S. - with a collective population of 516,598,554 - amount of winners from these countries = 94.

U.S. population of 295,734,134 - total amount of winners = 406

Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?

I’d say Americans buy 4 times more music on iTMS than the rest of the iTMS world combined.

Wouldn’t you?

It’s very possible that there are more iTMS purchases made in USA as opposed to rest of iTMS world put together.

I put the same question on Apple discussion board and just as people started to join the discussion, Apple locked the topic then removed it completely :-(

Clearly I hit a nerve - it was only a question - what happened to freedom of speech and all that???
