  • One Word Extinguisher

    • 8 out of 10
    • Prefuse 73
    • It's an album about a breakup, done with beats instead of mopey lyrics. But the beats are raw, and the emotions are there, even if there aren't many words on top of it. While possibly not Scott Herren
  • Every Day: The Best of the Verve Years

    • 8 out of 10
    • Joe Williams
    • Joe Williams was Figure Two in my three-man education in singing. A brilliant vocalist, scatter, and interpreter of jazz and blues, Williams produces music that's totally unique, yet sounds so effortl
  • The Wall (Deluxe Packaging Digitally Remastered)

    • 10 out of 10
    • Pink Floyd
    • Okay, someone had to say it, and though others on the iPO staff are more qualified to review this album, I decided the time was now. This is the quintessential concept album. Though others came before
  • Supernature

    • 10 out of 10
    • Goldfrapp
    • On their latest CD, Supernature, Goldfrapp has put together a successful mix of 1980-era New Romanticism, German cabaret, and T. Rex glam that leaves you riveted even through the album's lulls. It's a great amalgam that sounds current without sounding at all dated.

  • Suspended Animation

    • 8 out of 10
    • Fantomas
    • Mike Patton may well be one of the hardest working men in showbiz these days, and his latest with Fantômas underscores just about how far out he is willing to travel.

Apple: We’re Hours Away From Billionth App Store Download

All eyes have been on the App Store counter since Apple announced a contest for the billionth download, and according to Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer, we're just "hours away" from the lucky download.

The comments came during today's quarterly conference call with analysts when one analyst asked about the mix between paid and free apps at the App Store.

To that question, Mr. Oppenheimer said, "We don't disclose the free versus the paid. But you know, we're just hours away from our billionth download and couldn't be happier with the store's results."

Later in the conference call, Apple COO Tim Cook offered more when he said that, "the billionth download that should occur tomorrow."

As of this writing, the counter sits at 995,185,922, and it has advanced approximately 300,000 in the 90 minutes since the conference call began. That pace is likely to quicken the closer we get to one billion downloads.

The person that downloads the billionth application from the App Store will receive a US$10,000 iTunes Store credit, a 17-inch MacBook Pro, a 32GB iPod touch, and a Time Capsule with which to back up those apps.
