This sounds SOOOOOO cool and exactly what I have been waiting for, for so long. MacCentral has live reporting here.

What I love so far....

"The Apple music service will offer one-click downloads. You can use iTunes to "browse" the entire music store by genre, artist and album. Apple is offering music tracks not available anywhere else, including Bob Dylan, U2 :D
, and others."

I see Apple.com has been updated with a new Music tab. There is also an ipod software update 1.3 for the old ipods, so they can play AAC encoded music.

Yes, the iTunes music store is only available in the US currently. They are supposed to later expand it internationally. There was no date given for the expansion.

Only available in the US? So much for free trade. :rolleyes:

As for the new iPod. I like the look. The weight. And oo la la...those round edges. Looks like Think Secret actually had this one on the money. Good for them. Oo...and back-lit buttons. :D

And here is some coverage from the Globe & Mail.

Well, since I live in Canada, I guess I can't buy anything, but I'd like to try out iTunes 4....

So... download iTunes 4, ...ooops, it requires Quicktime 6.2

Download Quicktime 6.2 updater... hmmm... the readme is a little unclear... will I need a new Pro key, or will the key I have in my 6.1 work?

M.

MacDaddy, sent my feedback already. Told them my Visa is burning a hole in my pocket! Please, everyone let them (politely) know that we REALLY want this service ASAP!!!

I'm getting a lot of busy messages and errors. Not too surprising really.

My guess, stinand, is that you have to provide billing info (VISA #, and VISA billing address) and that's how they know.

I would imagine a new Pro key is not required as the PRO key has only changed when a major release happens - 4, 5, 6...

Let me know, though, if the old PRO key works.
