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.

Disinfectant 3.7.1

Send Article to a Friend

Disinfectant 3.7.1 -- On the heels of last week's Disinfectant 3.7, John Norstad has released Disinfectant 3.7.1, which corrects an error that could cause a crash while scanning some rare types of large resource files. This release does not respond to the discovery of a new virus. If you aren't having problems scanning files using version 3.7, you probably don't need version 3.7.1.

We also heard from a few readers last week who were confused by the overloaded FTP server at Northwestern University. The server allows twenty simultaneous FTP users, but a new release of Disinfectant generates a lot of traffic. If you get an error, check your FTP transcript for a message, and try again in a few minutes. You can also get Disinfectant from mirror sites like the Info-Mac network. [GD]
