    Apple now has an NZ website here, complete with online store. No sign of iTunes yet, but hopefully it's coming :)

    Edit: There's a banner advertising iTunes on the site, but it doesn't seem to link to it. It's also not listed in the country dropdown. I suspect that this is a "placeholder" site ready for an announcement later today.

    Edit 2: Songs are $1.79 each, or $17.99 for an album. Games are $7.99.

    Yes iTS is there too...however I don't think we can actually sign up as yet, NZ hasn't appeared in the list.

    Have the prices changed on Apple products?

    Yes. The 15" 2.33 GHz MBP was $5049 and is now $4749. I don't know what any of the other "old" prices were.

    Edit: TotallyMac seems to still have the old prices for everything.

    But from where?

    Do we know if Apple products are direct from Apple?

    The announcement will be tomorrow. I have two RSS entries in my feed aggregator, one from Apple Hot News and one from Apple Press Releases. Both redirect to the URL http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2006/dec/06itunes.html , which doesn't actually exist yet (UPDATE: err now it does). Given the number "06" right before "itunes.html", it looks like Apple will officially open it tomorrow. (This matches up with the URLs of other press releases.)

    The Hot News item summary says:
