CS Odessa Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're happy to announce our latest sponsor, Computer Systems Odessa, makers of the intelligent diagramming and business drawing program ConceptDraw. Unlike most graphics programs, which provide access only to the visible attributes of objects, ConceptDraw lets you not only access all of the internal data that describes a given graphic object, but also lets you use formulas to create relationships between objects and give them customized behavior. The result is a fascinating program - grab a demo copy and check out Matt Neuburg's review, "Make the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553, for a more detailed description. CS Odessa is also unusual in the Macintosh world by virtue of their geographic location - they're based in Ukraine, and were the first company from there to exhibit at last month's Macworld Expo. It's great to see companies from outside the U.S. contributing so significantly to the Macintosh world, and CS Odessa is even helping revitalize the Russian translation of TidBITS. [ACE]
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.
