Apple iTunes hits a billion downloads

Apple today announced that 1 billion songs have been downloaded from the Apple iTunes Music Store.

The person who downloaded the billionth song from the iTunes Music Store won a new 20-inch iMac, 10 60GB iPods, and a $10,000 iTunes Music Card to jumpstart their digital music collection.

iTunes hit the 500 million download mark last July, and needed only seven additional months to double those sales.
