We Kiwis wait and wait and wait for the iTunes Music Store to open here, and it’s just not happening. An article this morning about a Coke Tunes store opening here piqued my interest, until I got all the way to the Coke Fridge only to read this:
Welcome to CokeTunes New Zealand’s largest digital music download store! … You’ll need Internet Explorer on a PC and also Windows Media Player to use CokeTunes.
Sigh. How old-fashioned is that! I guess I’ll be sticking with either no music or cheap CDs for a while yet. A quick trip into The Warehouse yesterday netted me three boxed sets of CDs at $10 per box of three (Billie Holiday, Santana and Glenn Miller). That’s a total of 9 CDs (almost 8 hours) and my Mac Mini ripped them all within about 15 minutes.
