UpdateAgent Correction -- After reading last week's article on installing Mac OS X (see "Out of the Box: Installing Mac OS X" in TidBITS-574), the folks at Insider Software pointed out that the TidBITS copy editing team might want to spend some time back in the box. We incorrectly listed UpdateAgent as "UpgradeAgent," and priced it at $70 instead of the actual $50 amount, which covers one year of service. Insider Software also noted that UpdateAgent is available on CD, which is handy for consultants or people with more than one Mac. Our stash of wet noodles has thankfully been drying in a closet for several weeks, but rest assured they've been re-moistened in preparation for a good flogging. [JLC]
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.
