Apple today announced that it has reached 50 billion app downloads. That’s 50,000,000,000. Wow. Some lucky winner got a $10,000 gift card for the App Store. Several others have $500 at their disposal.
For Apple, this is just more to brag about, because, you know, there wasn’t enough for Apple to brag to us about already. Really though, think about it. Some lucky guy or girl, somewhere in the world, is jumping for joy because they have earned a gift card that’s worth $10,000. You know how many apps, movies, books and songs that will buy? They will run out of hard drive space long before they ever figure out what to use it on.
Anyway, kudos to the winner, who Apple says it will announce shortly.
