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.

Canadian PowerBooks

Send Article to a Friend

We've just heard from Pythaeus that Apple Canada is not yet selling the PowerBook 170 configuration with 4 MB of RAM and an 80 MB drive (with or without the internal fax/data modem), which is the highest end PowerBook available from Apple. Apparently Apple Canada will announce the modem-less version of the 170 4/80 at the end of this month, so any of our Canadian readers who are considering purchasing a PowerBook 170 may wish to hold off for until that model becomes available. Interestingly, the PowerBook 140 4/80 is available in Canada now - wonder what the difference is? In any event, keep that little fact in mind if you've decided that you just have to have a 170 in the near future.
