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: Running for Office? Microsoft has begun rolling out Office 2001 - the latest versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, its flagship business productivity applications for the Macintosh. In this issue, TidBITS Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg reviews Entourage, Office 2001's new email and personal information manager, but we thought we'd ask: Do you plan to buy or upgrade to Microsoft Office 2001, and, if so, why? Are you attracted by new features, fixes, or improvements? Do you have to upgrade because your company or organization is standardized on Microsoft Office? Do you not plan to upgrade at all? Vote today on the TidBITS home page! [GD]
