    I am glad to see most people are pleased with the Music Store service, but I wanted to just say that those of you who have access to this service (U.S. Apple users) and are still ranting about the price of songs (99 cents) and what not, you are a$$holes. The fact of the matter is you can no longer hide behind the guise of, "CD's are too expensive," or "I don't want the entire album" etc. etc. Apple has provided for you an excellent system that is FAIR and copy right rules that are more than fair (hell you can basically do what ever you want with the song). Furthermore, any bugs to be found in the service will be hammered out and songs will be added, increasing the selection. Apple has gone out of its way to get the 5 major record companies on board, not an easy task, and the service lets you actually purchase a song (as opposed to simply renting them). I personally have few complaints and applaud Apple for being revolutionary again. To the point, grow up, and pay for the music.

    Exactly brother! It's really funny how the sentiment has changed over P2P downloads. It seems like almost overnight Kazaa has become a taboo (in mac crowds at least). I love it. I've gotten songs from artists I would never buy the whole CD from. I guess i'm saving money but I'm still spending money where I wouldn't have.

    The thing I like about this is that when I go to the Navy and out to sea, I'll be able to get music.

    Any word on when the store will be available for the rest of the world?

    Hi There

    My first post to this site, so I hope I get some responses!

    I was wondering if anyone knew when the rest of the world was likely to get access to the music store features? I am in Australia and would really like to have access to this service.

    So if anyone knows when it is likely to be released to the rest of the world, or specifically to Australia that would be great.


    Craig. ;)

    No one but Apple knows the answer to that right now. Their planning on opeing it up to windows users by years end so maybe they'll have the internationl stuff ironed out by then too. I know I'd be upset if I didn't live i the US....I really like the new service and would be frustrated watching it from afar.

    Same here, but I guess there are a whole lot of rights issues to resolve for regions outside the US, but I am sure it will come.

    Meanwhile, I am more interested in seeing the breadth and depth of artists expanding, it really has to include artists you wont get at your local department store or record chain, then it will be cool service but at the moment I've not found a song I want whether for cost or for free.
