    IMO, a 10K iTunes gift card would be useless to me, and to most people. Why don't they just ship you a Mac Pro, and call it a day?

    If I won it, I would just sell it on eBay for 9K and run to the bank.

    The 10 billionth app will be downloaded at about 1:46 GMT on Tuesday according to my calculations.

    I want that 10k gift card XD

    I will go to the app store, and download everything in the top 50 paid, in the games category, and everything else I want. What I will do with the rest of the ~ 9800 dollars, I HAVE NO IDEA, SERIOUSLY A 100 DOLLAR GIFT CARD IS ALREADY HUGE, most games cost less than one dollar anyway XD

    I don't see why not. If it was ONLY paid apps, then the current number would be much lower and the countdown would be much slower, because free apps couldn't be counted in it if the 10 billionth can't be free. Otherwise it'd be like the 10,000,000,007th app or something probably.

    Well, you could always just use the giftcard to buy the Mac Pro, no?

    I don't think you can buy a Mac Pro from iTunes.

    No
    It's an iTune card, not an Apple store card

    Ah, then that does seem useless indeed.
