iTunes hits Oz | Top stories | Breaking News 24/7 - NEWS.com.au (20-10-2005). Someone needs to remind Kathy McCabe that you're supposed to remove the superlatives and unsupportable claims before you publish a press release.
Hundreds of thousands of iPod users? Really? I know they're common, but how about some figures to back that up. A 500% increase in online sales? Compared with what? Services which nobody can even name? Based on predictions of how much money the iTunes execs expect to snort up their noses this year?
So, anyway, iTunes is finally getting released in Australia minus SonyBMG - obviously they didn't want to wait long enough to have a complete catalogue. Not that anyone should care based on the artists cited in this article (oh ok, Franz Ferdinand are pretty good).
