This Wednesday Apple reached another milestone with the company’s iTunes services. Seven years after the service was launched, the number of songs download surpassed the 10 billionth mark. The first billion downloads was reached in 2006 after which there have been over 9 billions downloads in the last 4 years. That’s massive!
Lucky for the dude who did the 10 billionth download, Apple awarded him with a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card as part of the achievement promotion. The 10,000,000,000th song was “Guess Things Happen That Way” by Johnny Cash and “was downloaded by Louie Sulcer of Woodstock, Georgia.” In case you are not aware, iTunes is also the largest music retailer in the U.S.
