Apple, iPhone

This Girl Won A $10,000 Gift Card From Apple…

Earlier this month, Apple was running a contest leading up to the 25th Billionth App downloaded from the App Store. The person who downloaded that magical app would win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card from Apple. Ms. Fu Chunli of Qingdao, China downloaded “Wheres my Water? Free”, and unknowingly won herself a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. The funny thing is that she’s not even a huge Apple fan and was completely oblivious to any giveaway or contest happening.

A recent report from M.I.C. Gadget shed some light on the situation:

“Fu Chunli was not a big fan of Apple, and had only purchased her iPhone for about one month, still learning how to use the App Store. She didn’t know anything about the competition until she was contacted by Apple. When she received a call from staff at Apple (China), she thought it was a hoax. She was still confused when a friend told her that she received a prize from Apple, but did not believe her luck until she saw an email from Apple Inc.”

Chunli was flown out to Bejing to visit Apple’s Chinese headquarters and took part in an official award ceremony. Pretty glamorous for the 25th Billion App Download, but well deserved for everyone involved. That was a huge milestone for Apple. I’m interested to see what they’ll do for the next big milestone!

It’s quite ironic that the winner of the $10,000 Gift Card contest someone who was new to the world of Apple and had no clue what was happening. I have to admit though, I’d assume it was a hoax if I began receiving notifications that I won something of that magnitude. If every email I had received for a massive prize was true, I would’ve won the UK Lottery like 10 times…

Good for her though. I’m sure she’s very happy with her new iPhone now. Just think of all the music you could download with $10,000 or how about apps… Wow, that’s a lot of apps.

Also just to let you know, we’re giving away a new iPad. It ends this Sunday! Click here for all the details to enter!

    Funny, the woman who downloaded the 10billionth app (back in Jan 2011) also thought the call from Apple was a prank:
