As the number of songs downloaded from Apple’s iTunes Music Store crosses 98 million soon, Apple will begin the countdown to 100 million songs by giving away 50 special 20GB iPods — one to the purchaser of each 100,000th song downloaded between 95 million and 100 million songs. In addition, the person who downloads the 100 millionth song will receive a 17-inch PowerBook, a 40GB iPod, a gift certificate for 10,000 iTunes songs to create the ultimate music library for their iPod and the opportunity to create their own Celebrity Playlist to be published on the iTunes Music Store. All iTunes Music Store customers in the US, UK, France and Germany are eligible.

The iTunes Music Store is one of the world’s top online music service, with more than a 70 percent market share of legal downloads for singles and albums. iTunes will sell its 95 millionth song tomorrow, including over 1.5 million songs sold in the UK, France and Germany since iTunes was launched in Europe two weeks ago.

The iTunes Music Store in the US, UK, France and Germany offers a music library of over 700,000 songs in each country. With Apple’s easy-to-use features, personal use rights and breakthrough pricing of just $0.99, €0.99 and £0.79, the iTunes Music Store is considered by many to be the best way for PC and Mac users in the US, UK, France and Germany to legally discover, purchase and download music online according to Apple. The iTunes Music Store in the US, UK, France and Germany gives users the ability to play songs on up to five personal computers, burn a song onto CDs an unlimited number of times, burn the same playlist up to seven times and listen to their music on an unlimited number of iPods.

The iTunes Music Store is available for free download and more information on the promotion can be found at www.apple.com/itunes.
