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.

Feed the Hungry While Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner -- Thanksgiving is all about family and food, and to help those who may not have either, we'll be donating $1 from the sale of each copy of Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" during the month of November to the San Francisco Food Bank, a non-profit organization (where Joe has volunteered) whose mission is to end hunger in San Francisco.

If you've read one of Joe's books, you know he's great at helping you successfully work through complex computer tasks like installing Mac OS X or creating a solid backup scheme. He also did an amazing job with writing about the entire process of planning and preparing a Thanksgiving dinner, and honestly, given all the editing, testing, and internal linking, we think "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" is one of our best titles ever. You can buy the book in our usual electronic format for only $5 this week, during our 50 percent-off anniversary sale, but if you think you'll need a printed copy in the kitchen, you can buy it that way too for $19.99.
