The BIG Reason

Music, opinions, and portfolio of Mark Eagleton, musician and web developer in Northern CA.

One Billion

Apple is celebrating its 1 billionth song sold in the iTune music store with another contest. There are a couple of bad ass things going on here.

  • The live updating countdown with recently sold songs cover art is the most noticeable.
  • The insane amount of iPods included in the grand prize.

My personal favorite is the lesser mentioned grand prize item: a full-ride scholarship in your name to “a world-renowned music school.” Investing in the future of rock-n-roll. That’s cool. I’d like my name on something like that.
