Sixteen-year-old Alex Ostrovsky downloaded a Cold Play tune on iTunes and scored big-time.

It was the one billionth download of Apple popular music service. In honour of the milestone, Apple is giving him an iMac computer with a 20-inch screen, 10 iPods and US$10,000 worth of downloads on iTunes. And they plan to name a Juilliard School scholarship after him.

Apple has sold 40 million iPods since they were launched in 2001.
