The App Store is about to hit ten billion downloads.
Download the ten billionth app and you could win a US $10,000 iTunes Gift Card.
Apple - iTunes - 10 Billion App Countdown

Ten billion. That's 10,000,000,000.
That's an insane number of downloads.

And how you win is:
Quote:
The Promotion shall begin on January 6, 2011 and ends with the downloading of the 10 billionth app (“Promotion Period”). For purposes of the Promotion, the downloading of the 10 billionth app is considered to be either the downloading of the 10 billionth app from the App Store or the receipt of the non-purchase entry after the download of the 9,999,999,999th app, whichever comes first. Only entries submitted in this time period will be accepted. Sponsor’s computer is the official time keeping device for this promotion.
Or in other words. Either the ten billionth app download or the the first non download entry after the 999,999,999th app is downloaded will win, which ever is first. And at the speed the download counter is going there is about .001 of a second between each app download. So unless you can submit a non download form in .001 of a second you have a better chance just randomly purchasing apps roughly at the right time.
