    You can only purchase tracks at the iTMS in the country on your credit card billing address.

    As of 10:46 PM on Wednesday December 1st the Canada store is live. Choose sign in, then select the option for not having a US credit card. Canada now shows as a country and you will be taken to the store. Tracks are $0.99 and albums seem to be $9.99 or $11.99.

    I still don't get this, but it's been beaten to death, so I won't go there, but... but...



    I like to believe people are generally good. Since I can only speak for myself, I'll admit to participating in some downloading of music and other questionable material, but that doesn't mean I won't choose a legal way if it is provided to me. Mac users still don't have much choice here in Canada, so p2p it has been. That'll all change *quickly* when iTMS is open for business, especially with continued marketing on Apple's part.

    I can't take all the credit; I noticed people getting all excited on other forums and thought I'd share the news (once I confirmed it, of course).
