With Apple's new countdown to half a billion songs purchased on iTMS, I decided to try to create a widget to show the same content as on the current iTunes homepage. I think I got close, given Apple provided all the code in its page source, however I'm missing something. Would someone like to take over? I'd be happy to send you what I have so far.

Thanks!

I might be, but I'm trying to do it myself also. I am also very busy at this time, so I'll see how it goes, but chances are someone else is doing the exact same thing at this very moment!

Looks like a few people have been racing that one out. Maclover has one out in the Msc category.

Watching counters isn't exactly my thang, nor do I think it needs to be placed at my fingertips when of course I can see it on the site, but, that's just me. I guess it would be a historical event. Better get the plans ready for a billion-song counter, eh?

What I'd like to see, just for the sake of it, is not a countdown that counts up, but a countdown that counts DOWN! Now that would be qwerky, won't it?

Then you could put them side by side. I wonder if anyone's calculating when to buy a song to be the 500,000,000th buyer.

Someone is. Although not via this widget necessarily. There's an app released last night that follows the count and estimates the time of each 100,000 crossing: iTunes Estimator.[/url]

That always says the next one will be sold on July 7, 2005.
