[CNN] Daughter downloads 10-billionth app, mom hangs up on Apple

Apple's countdown to 10 billion downloads in its App Store hit its long-awaited milestone this weekend.

The lucky customer, who gets $10,000 worth of virtual cash for the download, responded to the news by hanging up the phone on Apple when the company called to congratulate her.

Kinda of ironic, huh? I wonder if the call was blocked by the caller ID? In my house, no number, no answer.

I think the media twisted this a bit, i doubt she 'Hung up' like above, the call might have been call automatically declined

She should sue them for bugging her at home. At least that's what Apple would do.
