In less than 3 years, iTunes have legally sold over 100,000,000 songs.

One lucky winner will be recieving

  • One 20-inch iMac
  • Ten 60GB iPods (5 white/5 black)
  • One U.S. $10,000 iTunes Music Card (good for any media type)

after downloading “Speed of Sound” by ColdPlay. Not bad for £0.79!

“I hope that every customer, artist and music company executive takes a moment today to reflect on what we’ve achieved together during the past three years,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Over one billion songs have now been legally purchased and downloaded around the globe, representing a major force against music piracy and the future of music distribution as we move from CDs to the Internet.”
