    Has anyone heard any rumours as to when Apple plan to bring the iTunes music store to Australian shores?? I keep getting sent the 'New Music Tuesdays' but I can't access anything from Australia... Very annoying... Does anyone know if they even plan to bring it here or is the Apple market share in Aus too small?

    It's not the size of the market that's really the problem, although it does play a part indirectly. It's more the red-tape hurdle with the record companies that Apple has to worry about first. There are countless rumours dating back to the end of last year as to when it'll happen but personally I can't see us Aussies surfing the store anytime soon.

    We dont know when. Sure they want it for Oz, but one can guess that greedy music companies/authors/reps and competitors, as well as a truck load of red tape are holding things up. This year we hope...
