Free music hits London
Piccadilly Circus

If you've been down to Piccadilly Circus this week you might have noticed that the famous Coke advertising board has changed. Instead of being soley Coke, it's focusing on a joint promotion with iTunes which we love the sound of:

Send a text message with the word specified on the day of entry on the illuminated “Coke + iTunes” sign located at Piccadilly Circus, London to the short code 85100 and you could win upto 1000 songs

There’s a maximum of three entries per person and only UK residents with a UK phone number can enter but you could win 3, 5, 10, 100 or the prize bucket of 1000 songs. There's no doubt those of you who work round Piccadilly Circus will be getting text happy every day until the promotion finishes on December 3rd.

Plus if you're in town on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, then it's totally worth going down to tourist hell because it's rumoured that that Apple will be sending an iPod spotting brigade out on the streets. If you wave your iPod at these people then you will either get mugged or they'll give you 5 free songs and a can of coke. We hope it's the latter!
