Counting down to 1 billion songs...

I have no idea why I am staring at the counter.

But it's about to 999,200,000

Should reach 1 billion very in the next hour or so.

who is getting in on the action?

I've just bought a couple songs...

I bought an album earlier and, as the countdown gets closer, I'll buy a couple of Art Blakey collections I've had sitting in my shopping cart for a while.

I don't know how accurate the counter is, but it's ticking off about 50 songs a second now. About 3.5 hours at that pace. But I'm sure it will pick up the closer it gets.

If you open the Various counters (Apple Front Page .vs one on iTunes Page), there is a big difference in the running count. Try refreshing each and checking the count or view side by side.

It's going to be hard to nail that Billionth song, but I can waste a few dollars and give it a shot.

Wish me luck...

If I win 10 iPods, I'll do a friendly contest and give one away here....

Try going to the No Purchase Necessary entry:

[www.apple.com]

Server is slammed!

(or Apple took it offline)...

Free entry form:

(might go out of commission when we get close to the big 1B.)

Oh, great minds think alike!

The counter on iTMS is much higher than either two on Apple's website (iTunes and main page). About 20k higher.

No, the Free download does not count.

Videos and music videos don't count, either...

I wonder how much of that Billion is actual profit for Apple. I'm sure they include free songs and those Pepsi free songs in the Billion songs count.

So lets say if 70% is actual cash purchases, after they pay the record labels, hardware and software up-keep costs, and other costs of doing business, how much of the $70 million that is left is actual profit for Apple.

Anybody know?
