Apple has announced a milestone for the EU iTMS, with a countdown promotion starting today (Dec. 2).

Music fans in 17 countries around Europe are clicking their way to 100 million downloads on the European iTunes Music Stores. And to celebrate this milestone in the digital music revolution, we are running a special promotion to thank you for helping us make history.

One 30GB iPod to take your music collection with you wherever you go.
10,000-song Gift Card for the iTunes Music Store to buy all the songs you want and fill up your new iPod.
