It Takes Two to Tango -- Web site developers may be interested in Tango, a new product from EveryWare Development. Tango enables Mac-based Web servers like WebSTAR to communicate with Butler SQL, EveryWare's relational database. Although useful, the interesting part of Tango is that it combines a CGI for communicating with the Web server with a graphical editor that enables Web administrators to create Web pages quickly and without using SQL or HTML code. Tango 1.0 is bundled with Butler SQL and only works with it. The Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) version of Tango, due out in Jan-96, will support connections to databases including Oracle, Sybase, Informix, and FoxPro, running on Mac, Windows or Unix machines. The CGI is threaded and PowerPC-native for maximum performance. Butler SQL with Tango starts at $495 for a two-user license, although readers of DealBITS <email@example.com> pay only $247 through 30-Dec-95 (and multi-user licenses are also 50 percent off).

Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.
