hopefully, people will be satisfied with iTMS for windows and other counties when it comes out. it only makes sense that they wuld come out at the same time. the slogan could be...
music for everyone's ears.
introducing the iTunes Music Store for Windows and world wide.

That's just not cool, Apple. CD's don't stop playing if you bring them to another country, and neither should the iTMS music. I guess, though, that is for DRM reasons?

Actually, the guy did a re-install. Then when he tried to re-authorize them, he couldn't because he was outside the US and had changed his home address through the CC. Maybe he should have done a better backup and/or burned some CDs. It's not like the songs were remotely deleted or stopped playing.

I'm surprised this hasn't been caught yet here, unless it's discussed in another forum. It's kind-of a non-issue if you read the fine print. :cough: User error :cough:
