Apple launched the App Store on July 10, 2008. Since then, nearly one billion apps (928,560,859 and counting) have been downloaded for the iPhone and iPod Touch. As a way to calibrate and say thanks to everyone who has made the store a success, Apple is having a celebration/contest. Starting today, any app you download will earn you a chance to win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule, and a MacBook Pro.

Don't have an iPhone or iPod Touch? Not a problem, you can enter the contest by downloading apps via iTunes or through a free entry form. You may enter up to 25 times per day per person/iTunes account up until the tickers hits a billion. Some additional rules and restrictions apply, so make sure you check out the contest page for all the additional details.
