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.

Apple's PowerShare software

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's PowerShare software (the server component that can be used with the PowerTalk client software) will no longer include a copy of System 7 Pro in the box, effective today. The server software will require (but will not include) System 7.5 with PowerTalk installed. Some sites use PowerTalk in its basic peer-to-peer form, which requires no server, but others find the PowerShare server useful. [MHA]
