Drag is waste. Reduce it.


109 Songs from iTunes

Alucky individual has officially purchased and downloaded the 1,000,000,000th song from the iTunes Music Store. For his troubles, Apple has awarded this fortunate fellow with an iMac, 10 iPods, and a $10,000 iTMS gift-card.

While I did purchase one song* from the iTMS during their promotional countdown (or count-up, as it were) to the Big Billion, I'm sorry to report that it wasn't me. No, this guy apparently goes by the name "Alex Ostrovsky" (of West Bloomfield, Michigan), and I wish him well. Also, I wonder if he might not have an iPod to spare?

Congratulations, Alex.

* It was 'Space Oddity' by David Bowie, if you must know.

You should have gone with Coldplay, apparently :) .

And although you did use the correct title of the song you downloaded, people may be surprised to learn that they actually are familiar with "Space Oddity" albeit by another name - "Ground Control to Major Tom."
