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.

Poll Preview: Teneration X -- Companies like Apple go to great lengths when choosing product names: monikers like PowerBook, iBook, FireWire, and iMac are judged by how they sound, how they look, and how they'll be accepted in the marketplace. However, Apple's new operating system has many folks tongue-tied. Officially, the X in Mac OS X is a Roman numeral and according to Apple is pronounced "Mac OS Ten," though many people currently say "Mac OS Ex." Which do you find yourself using when talking about Mac OS X? Visit the TidBITS home page and cast your vote! [JLC]
