That means people in Turkey can finally buy my recording? Or Russia too?
This is one of those days I have been waiting...
At the end, we are getting three Apple Stores and iTunes Music Store Turkey is launching. Cheers! :)
And I can confirm it's available right now on my Mac. So far only the main page is working well, songs are not listed but it's officially not out yet :)
And movie store seems to be launching as well however the book store doesn't seem to be launching.
That's quite a difference. I have to pay 0,99 here. If I lived in Turkey, I would have two songs for that, almost three in fact.
Time to move...? ;)
It's always so nice to hear excitement from people who are as interested as technology as we all are, and actually appreciate it as the blessing it is by getting access to it for the first time. I hope that people will wait a few more hours before they start complaining about their inane problems here in the USA again, and take note of the tone of this post. :apple: :)
