snooping around apple's website

so there's a countdown to the 100 millionth song to be sold on itunes. if you happen to buy the 100 millionth song, then you'll win a powerbook, a 40GB iPod and a 10,000 itunes gift certificate. kick ass! while i was loading the site, there's a countdown thing on the side, and it just happens that there's a very simple piece of javascript that stores the count. so you can conceivably write your own little applet to count down for you and make sure you buy a song (to maybe 100s of songs) at exactly the right moment!

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
