“Apple, the US computer maker, is expected to launch its popular internet music store in Europe tomorrow, in an attempt to build on the company’s considerable success in the US online music market. [...]

One person in the industry said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, was expected to be on hand to announce Apple’s music store would immediately be available to consumers in the UK, Germany and France. Mr Jobs was also expected to announce plans to eventually roll out the service to other European countries.”

Apple’s press event will take place at approximately 11:00AM local time in London, England (6:00AM Eastern Standard Time and 3:00AM Pacific Standard Time, United States). Additional announcements regarding new iTunes and iPod pricing, availability, and accessories may be included in the presentation. Join iLounge tomorrow morning for full coverage of the event.

Steve zeigt die UK-Version des iTunes Music Store!: Jeder Song kostet 79 Pence!!


Im guessing that means songs are 79p in the UK! not as over-priced as i was expecting, but we’re still paying more than the US :(

99 cent in France, Germany

Posted by DG on June 15, 2004 at 4:35 AM (CDT)

9,99 euros is about 6,46 GBP (11,78 USD)
0,99 euros is about 0,64 GBP (1,17 USD)

So, it’s a bit more expensive, and still bit more expensive when you consider the current exchange rates.

APPLE RELEASES ITUNES MUSIC STORE EUROPE!

Songs are cheap to combat the blatant overpricing (almost double the U.S.) rates for retail cd’s seen in the UK and Australia and other parts of europe. Apple will truly be king of music now cuz people are really cheap bastards at heart, and want to save all their hard earned income to buy trans fatty acid artery clogging mcdonalds.

Brand New INFO from apple press event,


APPLE will sell the NEW IPOD with color screen to view album art. ITS maximum hard drive capacity of 60 gig will impress hard core music collectors, and can be used to store pictures as well.

Steve tells everone at the event that quote, Its the music stupid to all those prognosticators who think every ipod should be a linus’ blanket for their school microphone class recordings and stupid things like video on a 3 inch screen..
