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.

Bill Leue writes, "Your article on the StyleWriter backlog problem mentions the HP DeskWriter as a suitable substitute. You should also note that HP has recently extended the warranty on the DeskWriter to three years, making it even more attractive. The latest HP drivers seem to completely eliminate problems with System 7.0, TrueType, etc., and offer print spooling to boot." [Alternately, read on for news about a new printer from GCC. - Adam]
