$29.99 times 1 million is $29 million.
Apple announced today that OS X Lion got downloaded over 1 million times yesterday. That is pretty cool for a launch. For many early adopters it took some patience to get OS X Lion downloaded, but the Apple App Store did not go down in flames. I had to wait about 30 minutes for the 4GB download. OS X Lion is a nice update that provides its value pretty much from the start.
“Lion is off to a great start, user reviews and industry reaction have been fantastic,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Lion is a huge step forward, it’s not only packed with innovative features but it’s incredibly easy for users to update their Macs to the best OS we’ve ever made.”
