  4. Gandalf,

    The Guardian’s piece is a crock of shit, made up article. The iTunes Music Stre has been launched in UK, France, and Germany – with “the rest of Europe” (whatever that means) coming in October 2004.

  5. Only 3 countries now… UK, Germany and France. This was predicted since last week. Others coming in October according to SJ. Cannot access UK store from U.S. yet. Still doesn’t seem to be up.
