iTunes Music Store

post #1 of 163
Thread Starter 
Awesome. I just hope we can get obscure stuff and remixes. Got to clear up some space on my credit card.

Please post comments here. Has anyone tried iTunes 4 yet? I'm on dial-up here, so it'll be a while...

Heh, I'm kinda trying out the Music store right now, but I can't seem to login. Are we supposed to use our Apple ID, or do we have to sign up for a music acct specifically?

Er, never mind, I see it says you can use your Apple ID. Still doesn't seem to remember me though. Bah.

It has new iMovie-ish widgets.

I can get to the front music page, but it's giving me an error for links so far..

Can't wait to try out Rendezvous sharing

Is anyone connecting to the iTunes Music Store? When I click "Music Store" in iTunes4, it spins and spins, then returns a 504 error: there is an error with the music store.

It has been doing this for me since I downloaded it... Can't connect to it at all.

I am on a full OC-12 backbone, so, bandwidth isn't an issue. I tried turning off my firewall to no avail to see if there was a two-way communication that was being blocked.

Anyone actually connecting?

For all of the foreign complaints, in the keynote, they explicitly said that the launch is US only and being expanded. Blame the RIAA.

When I downloaded iTunes 4, I specified US as my location. It can't be that easy though. Hopefully you can trick it like Audible.com by temporarily sticking in a US address for your credit card. Otherwise I'll have to ask my sister to lend me her credit card number for this. They can't possibly check location by IP address, right? Last resort... move to Hawaii (but only after Bush is gone).

I think it's because of music rights which aren't always world wide.

BUT, Apple have had a year and a half to make deals with other record companies around the world.

I did the same (not the hawaii thing). I even predicted this before the anouncement and changed the billing adress to US.

Don´t know if it worked yet. Due to massively underdimentioned servers...

So do I(that was my point).

Possibly, but it may be that they have not gotten approval yet from enough of the foriegn distributors, some of them may have decided to take a 'wait and see' approach.

Well, the store won't come up; HOWEVER, searching does work. Enter in a band name and it will come back with the results. Even lists the albums you can buy full.
post #24 of 163
the selection kind of sucks. i expected better but it is done much more elegantly than I anticipated.

they need to work hard on the selection though

DAAMMN!!!!

I was downloading by dial-up, it's 3:30am, and my PowerBook battery ran out with a minute left on iTunes 4. and seconds left on iPod 1.3.

Don't ask why the battery ran out. Blown fuse on the wall outlet and then stupidity.

I couldn't resume the download for iTunes 4 (using Speed Download specifically for that purpose)!

At least I've got iPod 1.3 now. Time to test it...

It is really sad that they have not worked out the issues with the copyright owners outside the US. Well, maybe it is due to the copyprotection that the MI is trying to put upon us Europeans.

Apple does things right - unfortunately only for US customers.

What I like to know is what servers the service is run on.

It's the billing address for your credit card that has to be in the US.

All I can say is "wow". The new iTunes 4 with its built in Music Store works great. I have been able to find and preview lots of songs, but somehow I have not been able to sign-in to make actual purchases (504 error). I have already lined up 2 albums and quite a few songs I am going to purchase as soon as the store error clears, which I am sure has something to do with thousands of people trying to sign up with their .Mac addresses right now. As I said, streaming previews seem to work great though.

I watched the event via satellite tv and I am really excited about all the news. Rendevouz seemed to work great on stage (Steve, Phil and another guy named Peter) with 2 AlBooks 12" via Airport Extreme showed up on Steve's computer and he could listen to streaming music from the pbooks with ease. The new iPods seem to be really cool too, the new base/cradle with audio out is a much needed and welcome addition.

I`m sure their selection will "thicken" a bit with time. Until then all I can say right now is "Bad ass!"

CD's will be obsolete by the time we get to join in. iPhoto prints were supposedly going to be available outside of the US. Yeah, right.

I am fuming.

Can´t ever remember when any online service have tried to verify me by adress. Isn´t it normally only by cardhodlers name?

I just moved from one adress to another. would than mean I wasn´t able to use my Visa for aperiode of time (until they had changed the registration)?
post #39 of 163
Since Apple is offering product legally, rights issues are a problem Don't blame Apple, blame the record companies in Europe. By the end of the year I'm sure the service will be available outside the U.S.

Apple have created a new genre- the explicit instrumental. Don't know how it works but i found a track that i know to instrumental and they say it's explicit. Was the band being fellated at the time of recording? Also you have to be 18 to have a credit card, i think we can handle stuff without being nannyed, don't you? Also pissed off about the U.S-centric side of things.
