A way to go

Apple are about to shift their 1 billionth app. The customer who hits the lucky 1,000,000,000 get all kinds of prizes, including a MacBook Pro and $10,000 of iTunes store credit.  We at Applick think we are a shoo-in to win it!

Right now looks like about 59,000,000 downloads to go till they hit the magic number …at 100 downloads per second…carry the three… denominator….  = sometime Saturday afternoon GMT?
