    For it to be a realtime download clock there would have to be a constant activity to apples servers, right now it doesn't seem like it is doing that since I see no activity in LittleSnitch.
    Looking at the javascript code though, it does seem like the countdown script has a refresh rate of 50 something, but can't be seconds as I have watched it for 2 minutes already with no activity.

    Did your internet die for 2 mins or something? Cause for me everytime I look at the counter it's always moving. To me the 50 could be 50 milliseconds. That sounds about right.

    The counter does always move (Count Up). I was curious if it is a realtime download number, but it appears not since I can turn off my internet and the counter still keeps counting up.

    As of 12:10 AM MST…

    9,996,900,000 (estimated)

    So far in the last two hours this has gone up quite fast…people are definitely rushing into this. But I'm not staying up for another two and a half to four hours (estimated time) to try and play my hand at winning a high dollar iTunes Gift card. Happy Winnings to whoever the winner may be.
