99 cents well spent



wow....i just had to post this even though I'm late for football practice. I just got this piece of info from Google News.

Ever heard of Mr. Alex Ostrovsky?
(No??? Damn....Where have u been all these years?????)

LoL..i'm just kiddin. He isn't anyone famous but he's just become very famous in the last 24hours.
Well, you might ask - what did he do to suddenly become so famous?

Ok. All he did was pay 99 cents to download "Speed of Sound," a song on the Coldplay album "X&Y," from the iTunes Music Store, the Internet music shop by Apple started less than three years ago.

He did not know it, but it was the billionth song the site had sold, and Apple was not about to let that go unnoticed.

So at 12:45 a.m., Mr. Ostrovsky's phone rang. It was an Apple employee, telling him that in addition to the song, Apple was giving him a 20-inch iMac, 10 iPods and a $10,000 gift card for the iTunes store. It is even establishing a scholarship at the Juilliard School in his name!!

God! how lucky can an old man like Mr.Ostrovsky get??

Did i say old?
If i did, sorry, and get this --> Mr.Ostrovky is just 16 YEARS OLD!!!!

Phew..talk about getting lucky. And by the way, Apple sure knows how to reward its customers.
