a few months back i bought an ipod touch for my wife from an authorised apple reseller MEDIACENTER here in Karachi, Pakistan. Now the problem that i am facing is that ITunes is not available in Pakistan (even though they are selling IPods over here) and i cannot get the January 2008 update nor can i use the appstore.
I read somewhere that apple doesn't give access to ITunes everywhere as copyrights laws are not stringent enough or aren't enforced properly in some countries which leads them to not offer ITunes and music downloads in all countries.
I disagree (as the music is mostly DRM protected and i don't have any choice to download legal music anymore) but gave them the benefit of the doubt. However, i fail to see why the appstore is not available to me. Whats the problem now? i can buy software all over the net but not from the appstore. is it fair. why can't i use my touch to its full potential.
i feel left out and not happy.

There is a percentage taken into account by manufactures when producing, analyzing cost, profits, etc...
That percentage, Amongst many, is determined based off of
Defective units produced against actually units produced.
That percentage is US and I assure you it is smallMajor credit to the Programmers.
Your efforts makes the IPHONE that much better. Thank You! Without you, There is no Us!!
I believe in beta testing for free and paying for Smooth integrated, Compatible, and functioning Apps.

you want a rationale for stealing? How about all the stolen labor hours from companies such as apple and microsoft walmart etc. You know how one guy makes 40 billion, while the people who help him make the money, still cant afford health insurance, much less afford to purchase the same products they sell. How about the fact that they sell you an iphone last year, when they know damn well know they will sell you a new one a year later, and yet another one next year. Why is it you buy an operating system, and one year later, they come out with a new one , and all new products work only on the new OS so you must upgrade for a fee?? Who is cheating who here? Maybe the developers get somewhat screwed in the end, but they should be getting PAID handsomely by these billion dollar corps who couldnt spend their profits in a lifetime.
but i do agree that the developers arent really getting screwed. Fact is, i wouldnt have purchased any of the apps i had on my 1.1.4. and if they were not available to me free, i probably wouldnt have purchased an iphone in the first place. Hell, i can just as easily use a laptop with an aircard for a portable phone.

You see thats what I was saying. Businesses only want to make money, and in order for them to make money they will have to lower their prices in order for them to sell their goods and services. Music industry is one typical example of it. Remember before downloading, music costed us a bomb!

seriously, with how much the iphone costed, how much the service plan costs, cmooooon got no money left over, working student, i see no difference, im just stoked and cant wait for some hacked apps because im not gonna buy em anyway cuz i dont have that kind of money to blow, so its not like theyre losing anything.
If ANYTHING, someone will see me playing it and be like hey thats cool as ***** im gonna go get an iphone, then like 20 more people get that app. i know thers a lot of arguments against that, but still thats one thing that could and does happen.
