  1. I do wonder what the problem might be with Canada. I mean, APple isn’t going to neglect any market if they can help it. I wonder if there just isn’t enough reward for the cost of doing business there….

    Whatever it is, I do feel your pain and hope Apple can work something out soon!

  2. It will be interesting to see what burden (cost) these local stores will involve … Each store is localized for local content and offers, this means that local staff is required for each. We already know that margins are razor thin in the sale of songs which means that the critical mass of sales required is huge. I am not sure that small markets like austria, Italy and greece will actually generate this critical mass.

    The implication is that although it is great that they are adding all these stores the profits of iTMS will actually go down leading to a lower stock price … Not that the price will go down .. needless to say it will go up due to irrational euphoria.

  3. nice nice, I think of the countries don’t make sense when australia as a country has a bigger demand of users than in some of those small countries(austria, greece & italy) but who knows they prolly know about their business than i’ll ever know. Congrats to all the users in those countries, enjoy enojoy.

  4. Dave, you must be english! Only the English manage to always get screwed on the price of … everything. Think Cars, The Tube, Taxis … not to mention London Restaurants!!

    Glad that apple has given you a positive arbitrage opportunity … I imagine UK stroe will suffer a bit!

  6. Java, spot on. I’m as English as a rained off Cricket match.

    And you forgot we also pay �3 a pint for beer (about US$5.50). Why do you think we’re all emigrating to the Mediterranean?
