$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.”
Lion introduces more than 250 new features to the Mac, including Multi-Touch® gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, an innovative view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore great software; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app.
