I'm just wondering if anybody else is having trouble connecting to music store. Obviously my internet connection is fine. I thought it might be my machine, but my roomate cannot connect either.

I did a quick scan for another thread mentioning this - didn't see it

Possibly To do with the Pepsi/iTunes promo. I would be happy if it is cuz i have two caps to redeam and i really want to win the iPod mini but the chances are 1 in 200,000,000 :eek:

There's no Pepsi promotion in Europe and it looks like only the N.Ireland store is still up.

Could just be a regular update N.Ireland is newer than iTMS UK etc.

The iPod / iTunes pages on Apple websites are down too in UK, France & Germany, not US.

iTMS down in BC...

I'm in British Columbia, Canada and it's been down for half hour now.
I can browse....slowly....but can't login or purchase anything.

Just as I was gonna buy the American Idiot album...

It's working here in Utah, but it's incredibly slow. It could be that they're doing maintenance in anticipation of the Pepsi/iTunes promotion starting.

i may have spoken too soon. I can preview some artists - so far only the songs that are listed on the main page or the songs from the albums listed. But I can't search, browse will not load album names. I think whoever mentioned it might be right about getting ready for the promotion, but why would only some features be down? I haven't tried to make a purchase, so I don't know how that would change things.

On a related note, I haven't seen any special Pepsi bottles here - are they showing up everywhere else?

Yeah the bottels have been in my local Mijers i must say that i look like a shoplifter (i take the bottels in the beging of shoping so i can do the tilt trick and then i put the rest back) i sorta feel bad for the other people buying them cuz i am taking all the wining caps :rolleyes:
