Yesterday (new iPods and iMacs aside), Apple announced that at 11:34pm on September 3, 2003 some gullible Music Store user had bought and downloaded the one millionth AAC file. What did this person download? Avril Lavigne's Complicated. Shame on you! You know who you are. Realistically, The actual 'ten millionth' download was probably something less well-known or even sadder - Atomic Kitten for example (I just searched for the aforementioned girl group and the message 'Did you mean Attic Sitter?' came up. Nice to see that the Music Store does draw the line somewhere). Imagine if the 10,000,000th track was 'Fuck Me' by Vanilla Ice? Or 'Fuck her Gently' by Tenacious D? Would that have been 'cool'? Call me cynical but I'm sure the Apple PR department picked the most suitable song from between 999,980 to 10,000,020 for the press release. Or else they chose which track summed up the whole iTunes download experience (for their desired target market) and downloaded it when the time came.
You can't fool me, I know how you operate.
