Apple App Store hits 10 billion downloads

Just over a week has passed since Apple posted up their 10 billion App Store download counter, and that’s all the time it took to hit this ridiculous milestone. Yes, Apple has sold / delivered over 10 billion apps to customers in just a few years. With Apple’s developer following and customers growing rapidly, we’re sure it won’t take nearly as long to hit 20 billion. The person who downloaded the 10 billionth app will be announced within a couple days according to Apple. More →

Apple iPhone 4 giveaway: part 2!

Apple iPhone 4 giveaway: part 2!

What’s better than giving away one iPhone 4? Giving away two of them, obviously. We saw that some of you didn’t like that the winner of the iPhone 4 actually already had purchased one for himself (unbeknownst to us), and since we value every single one of you out there, we thought it would be fair to do another giveaway. That’s right, we’re giving away one more iPhone 4, and the rules are basically the same. Here are the official contest rules:

  • To officially enter into the giveaway, drop a comment below explaining how badly you want a new iPhone 4 and why!
  • If you use Twitter, shoot us a follow! Our username is @BGR.
  • If you use Facebook, become a fan of our BGR Facebook page.
  • We’ll run the giveaway for a little over a week, until Wednesday, July 21st at 11:59PM
  • Please enter once and only once, multiple entries will disqualify you

Good luck. Again!

HTC Touch Diamond giveaway winner!

Are you sure you want to know to know who the winner is? Well, you might have guessed from the picture above. BadChad, please stand up and claim your prize! This was really tough to decide but we wanted the most creative entry and that picture just screams creativity doesn’t it? It kind of scares us a little inside, but from the Boy Genius tattoo to the armband and visor to the unnecessary purple glove… it’s a definite winner! First runner up goes to the nerd listening to N.E.R.D. with a pocket full of Nerds. Thanks again to everyone that entered. We got hundreds and hundreds of submissions and we’ve got some great giveaways coming up! Don’t forget to enter our N.E.R.D. giveaway either, ‘kay?

The HTC Touch Diamond giveaway ended on Sunday and we were going to pick a winner yesterday, but we got way too many entries to pick someone that quickly. We’ll announce the winner of the Touch Diamond sometime tomorrow, but in the meantime, check out the gallery of all the pictures everyone sent in. If your picture isn’t in the gallery don’t be mad, we couldn’t fit all of them in there, but you are most certainly still in the drawing. Thanks to everyone that entered!
