Finally! It would’ve been fun if Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway were bundled up into a Scandinavian Music Store so people could download exclusive music from the neighboring countries. Are there any country exclusive tracks or is there a universal Music Store Database available for every country to download?

In which ever case, YES! FINALLY!

Looking at the country selection screen now:


It is all squashed up as if they are going to change it.

Im in Australia and I used to always get the ‘The store is not available in your country yet, hence you will be able to browse but not buy etc…’, but it is no longer there when I try to access the store now!! Aus still isn’t listed in the ‘Choose Country’, but its a sure sign it is coming!!

And I hope Apple Australia decide to release it on Australia’s Thursday, and not the US’s Thursday. We are always made to wait an extra day for the release of Apple stuff!!! Not fair!! :’(
