well after nearly 3 months wait (it was ment to launch in October) the Irish iTunes music store has launced. Only thing is nothing, other then my laptop and workstation and imac, will play music from this. like i cant play it on my PPC or Smartphone. in theory there is a cheat though. burn it to CD, re rip it in Windows media player with no DRM and then send it to the PPC or smartphone. i might try this out….
