Competition "iTMS half a billion", so you win

noviembre 29, 2019

At the furious pace of around 1,000 songs every 40-60 seconds, Apple's countdown continues towards 500 million songs, a stratospheric, monstrous goal, no other player in legal digital music can do the same in a few days.

The achievement of the 500 million downloads between all 19 active iTunes Music Stores is expected at 6.43 pm on 13 July … if the pace of purchases remains stable (based on the flash sign that performs the numbering on Apple's homepage), perhaps unrealistic given the prizes in question, able to stimulate more and more purchases.

We remind you that if you buy an entire album in a single solution, it will be considered a single purchase, so if possible better make single purchases of the songs to have more chances to be "extracted".

Note that the date was not chosen at random from Cupertino, not for nothing that Apple announced the financial results of the third fiscal quarter a few hours earlier (if the calculations are correct, it will be about 4 hours) the achievement of the middle record a billion digital songs bought online will be achieved … not a bad goal: a milestone to be communicated to the entire financial world.

Apple is proceeding to translate the rules of the competition and expect to expect at least the Italian text at the dedicated page that today, at the time of going online, bounced off the US page in English. Already the versions (in the same English) for Great Britain and Ireland were active, contrary to all the other languages ​​of the various iTunes Music Stores.

We only consider the current rhythm to suggest you when to approach the iTunes Music Store and try your luck, always buying good music anyway.

The free downloads for some very rare promotions in Italy are not valid, however your data will be recorded even if you will have the free "tell a friend" system (tell a friend about it) that works for every album on the iTunes Music Store, or baster communicate to the email address (Email protected) a certain song (to your liking, we suppose) and you could also happen on one of the special cadences (every one hundred thousand songs) provided by Apple to pay homage to you.

We suggest you buy music around the following (approximate and susceptible to variations) given to try and grab the iPod mini prizes along with the gift certificate of fifty other songs, every 10,000 songs sold, starting from the song number 480.100.000 in then to the half-billion mark:
