App Store: And the winners are...

Amazingly there are three winners of App Store's billionth download sweepstakes. Connor Mulcahey, a thirteen year old from Weston, CT, downloaded the one billionth app and is the winner of a MacBook Pro, Time Capsule, iPod touch and one $10,000.00 iTunes Gift Card. Congratulations.

The other two winners are Apple and Bump Technologies.  Apple for it's one billionth download showing to the world that design is everything and content is king. Bump Technologies for having their free contact sharing application Bump be the billionth download.  Bump was released less than a month ago on March 27, 2009.  Now if only it were a .99 cent app they would have seen a bump in their revenue. But press is press and good press is great press.
