I honestly cannot remember if it was four or five, but I also did that in the period between the last update and when it ticked over 100 million. The first two I purchased shortly after the last update, and I'm thinking those two are the ones with the best shot at winning.500 songs? Are you serious? Wow! Someone will probably win who was just sending a link to a friend. Did you read the rules? We didn't have to be buying music, for we could have been simply emailing our friends something, and that would enter us. It is in the official rules. However, that sounded boring. I sure hope the winner actually won by buying a song. Remember contests in America, you never have to buy anything.

Reply 11 of 13 jhazel Posts: 28member July 12, 2004 8:49AM Congratulations Kevin!! And THANKS Apple for a great promotion!!My hope is that this was a PC user and not a Mac-faithful. A lot of PC users will not use a Mac unless it was given to them. Maybe this will be his "switch" story!Josh Reply 12 of 13 pfflam Posts: 5,053member July 12, 2004 9:26AM Reply 13 of 13 malokata Posts: 197member July 13, 2004 1:44PM Nope, he's a mac fan.
