though they own the 33% of the app prices and who knows what deals they have puted the devs into for some free apps,so apple may not give no dollar to anyone...
@Cows, well I'm not defending microsoft as it's as crappy as Apple. But this 1000$ was a real money, not the Apple gift card crap. Just imagine, if it's true this gift card is valid only 2 years. Just sum up what You have to do to actually spent 10000$, it's ridicolous.
Let's just say average price for app and song is 1$. To spend it all in 730 days she will have to buy 14 songs/apps per day for 2 years. That's a lot. She will very fast get boored with it, as good songs and apps are like 1000 tops. What's more it's all virtual money.
It's very clever by Apple, but this gift card is actually worth big crap. Seeing how much money is Apple making. It's really shameful for them that they can't afford giving her each one of their new devices. I mean it's still nothing for them if they gave her a free new iPad and iPhones 4S. Other companies are making competitions giving away free devices. Is all that Apple can do a crap gift card with ridicolous ammount of money to spend? HAHA
This sums Apple up.
A real prize is REAL MONEY and a trip to one of their sweatshop, manufacturing plants.
How odd that a local national get the amazing chance to visit her own capital!
it's funny! a chinese girl from the mainland wins a trip to beijing. Woow! Hilarious!
Apple: Hi Fu Chunli you won $10,000 worth of itunes download plus a trip to Beijing!
Fu Chunli: *sigh8 T.T (no excitement at all.
Apple get a lot more credibility that this Microsoft scam commented on in the gsmarena blog earlier this week:
Microsoft (oh what ever supplier chain vendor organised it) fail to pay out on $1000.
That is nothing, I have been the lucky one millionth customer on about 15 web sites so far this year. I have sent them all my bank details ... just waiting for the prizes to be paid.
$10000 dollars is nothing, poor apple. Apple should give her $100000 dollars. Very very poor apple.
whoa, Where's My Water, I love that game too.
still 25% finished... loong way to go.
don't gift cards have a 2 year limit before they expire even in an account?
Could've been a lot more interesting if the 25 billionth app was 'Kamasutra' or 'My Mobile Vibrator'...
