iTunes Australia Coming (one day)!

Russell Crowe got our hopes up in this article: iTunes music store set to open. Today is Friday and it’s not open. But here’s some other articles stating that it will open in mid june.

iTunes Australia – the Crowe let it out of the bag…

While they seem to be agreed of the month it’s opening, the cost per track seems to be up for grabs with 99 cents per track through to $1.80.

There’s a quote from someone that is getting used a lot in these article stating that if it’s $1.80 per track, or too expensive they’ll stick to Big W for $17. Well yeah that makes sense, I’d buy all my cds from Big W too if I could always find what I wanted. Big W is great for top 40 stuff, which 90% of is crap and quite frankly $17 is too expensive for crap.

Unrelated but Appley side note for aussie readers who saw the late night channel 10 news bit on the Nokia phone that will apparantley give the iPod a run for it’s money even though it’s over $1000 and only holds 3,000 songs. WTF? How much did Nokia pay for that advertorial?

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.

    I think the gushing over the phone is main;y because it has a hard drive and plays AAC files. Can’t see many people paying a grand for it — maybe they’re counting on folks signing up to five year rental plans or something.

    The gushing was because it was a paid product placement, much like the bulk of stories aired on the tabloid current affairs programmes
