Has anybody sent one of their Apple hating friends a $10 gift certificate to the iTunes Music Store yet? I just sent one... good response except that he hates me due to the money he will lose...

:p

Ha, well, sounds good, yet I don't know if I'd want to go out and pay for a gift certificate.....too bad they're not giving away a song or two to get switchers....;)

Maybe in February things will get interesting....

This morning I installed Itunes PC on my Pc at work, and boy, this program is better then any pc audio program out there! But it still is inferior to the itunes experience on the Mac!

It's a bit off topic, but had to mention it! By the way, can any of you guys send me a certificate?!? I'm in Europe and this is the only way to download from the musicstore!

Only about half my friends have switched to iTunes since it came out. Almost all have tried it, the problem is that winamp does exactly what they need it to while using less resources. iTunes is great if you have 300+ songs, its not for everyone. Still, my mac has been getting more respect since iTunes came out.

Are you sure you can download from the music store in other countries, even with a gift certificate?

THATS AWESOMe!! Great loophole.

I might be wrong but doesn't Bill Gates own a fair portion of the Macintosh corporation:confused:

First of all there is no Macintosh Corporation. It's Apple Computer.

Secondly, Micrsoft invested about 150million dollars back when apple was worth only 3.3Billion, that's only abt 4.5%. That's not a fair portion.

Unless of course there's a Macintosh Corporation I don't know about.

It was also non-voting stock.

MS has essentially divested itself of this original investment. Yes, they still hold Apple stock, but that's through normal trading.
