The iOS App Store Is Just About To Pass 10 Billion Downloads

Holy crap; remember when the App Store surpassing 1 billion downloads was a nearly mind-blowing feat? Less than 2 years later, Apple is just a few million copies of Angry Birds away from cracking past 10 billion.

As with the 1 billion download landmark, Apple’s going to give away a $10,000 giftcard to whoever nabs that 10 billionth download. Sadly, you won’t be getting the iPod Touch, Time Capsule, and MacBook Pro from the first round — but hey, ten thousand bucks never hurts. Unless you fire it at yourself from some sort of money cannon. Or try to punch your way through a stack of 10,000 ones.
