Final Note

25 billion iTunes downloads for Apple, but a lawsuit too

This final note today, in which we learn once again that timing truly is everything.

A German man — Phllip Lupke, by name — has won a 10,000 Euro gift card from Apple. Seems he’s the guy who bought the 25 billionth song on iTunes. Twenty-five billion times 99 cents or so is a pretty good business model.

It’s also created something of a problem for Apple. It’s been sued by the hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who’s upset with how long its taking the company to give some of the $45 billion in cash it’s sitting on back to investors.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

Make a good investment!
