Apple’s iTunes Store has reached a huge milestone: 10 billion music downloads since opening on April 28, 2003. Back then there was about 200,000 songs to choose from. Today music isn’t all they sell; with the evolution of the iPod and the creation of new products such as the AppleTV, iPhone, iPod touch and soon the iPad the iTunes Store now delivers audiobooks, podcasts, TV shows, movies, apps and games. To celebrate the occasion Apple is giving the purchaser of the 10,000,000,000th song a $10,000 iTunes card.
Update: The 10 billionth song was “Guess Things Happen That Way” by Johnny Cash, purchased by Louie Sulcer of Woodstock, Georgia.
