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.

Sync Buddy 1.3 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Sync Buddy 1.3 Released -- Florent Pillet has released Sync Buddy 1.3, an update (and name change) to Palm Buddy, his Macintosh file-management utility for Palm handhelds (see "A New Buddy for Mac PalmPilot Users" in TidBITS-436). Sync Buddy doesn't replace the Palm Desktop software that comes with every new Palm OS-based device; instead, it enables you to make a live connection to your handheld and install, delete, or get information about a file. Sync Buddy's strongest feature, however, is the capability to create snapshot backups of anything on your Palm device, including applications in ROM. This update also brings USB and infrared compatibility to Sync Buddy, support for Handspring Visor and Sony Clie devices (the latter when used with Mark/Space's The Missing Sync software), and general bug fixes. In addition, the utility includes more plug-ins for converting file formats (such as HanDBase and JFile database files), and plug-ins for non-Roman languages. Sync Buddy costs $25 shareware; the upgrade is free for registered users of Palm Buddy, and is a 1.1 MB download. [JLC]
