    I know of Digirama and Coke (OD2), both of which aren't Mac-compatible :(

    Anyone know of any others?

    Digirama says that they want to add Mac support but they need to wait for Microsoft or Apple to do something about it. I forwarded their response to both companies - Microsoft said they're considering it and Apple didn't bother to reply :mad:

    Coke doesn't seem to have any means of contacting them :eek:

    Mac music marginalization

    All of the big music stores that I know of are all PC only except iTunes. It seems like all these companies figure since we use Macs we'll use their music store. The biggies are Coke and Napster (wasn't Walmart getting into this too?). A latin music download store is supposed to be opening soon which is supposed to be Mac compatible (except for subscriptions) http://www.musica360.com/.

    There are a few indie sites that you can go to as well: www.audiolunchbox.com, www.emusic.com, and www.indieheaven.com (for indie Christian music). Amazon.com also has some old songs for free download but they aren't of very good quality.

    The problem is that Apple hasn't released iTunes here yet :mad:

    iTunes Australia?

    What gets me is that they can get an iTMS for Japan, probably one of the hardest countries in the world to do if what I have heard is true, yet they endlessly f@#& around when it comes to iTMS Australia and NZ(?)

    It's definitely coming (they've assigned store IDs - 60 and 61 for Au and NZ), they're just taking a ridiculously long time. It's been how long since the US release? 28 months, I think.
