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.

While Safari, Firefox, and Chrome have been getting most of the attention, Opera has been quietly at work on Opera 11.50, which now includes a long list of new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The Web browser’s user interface has received a number of improvements, ranging from a new icon set to better layout. Opera Link, the company’s data-synchronization service, is now capable of storing passwords alongside other browsing data, while Opera Mail includes better support for Gmail’s IMAP service. Opera’s support for HTML 5 has received a significant boost through the introduction of numerous new features, including the Opera Presto 2.9 rendering engine. (Free, 13.7 MB)
