Ten Billionth iTunes Song Downloader Gets Surprise Phone Call

Louie Sulcer wasn't expecting to make history this past week.  He just wanted to download Johnny Cash‚Äôs ‚ÄúGuess Things Happen That Way‚Äù and add it to a mix for his son.

Ironically, the way things happened, the Woodstock, Georgia native was the man who downloaded song number TEN BEEELLION from iTunes.

Sulcer's reward?  A US$10,000 iTunes card — and a personal phone call from Steve Jobs.  At first, Sulcer thought it was a prank call, until he realized his caller ID said "Apple."

Even more ironically, Sulcer had recently gotten an iPod Nano as a birthday present.  With ten grand worth of iTunes credit — and a personal collection of nearly 900 songs — it's a good bet he'll be pricing out a 320GB iPod Classic real soon now…
