    well im really excited about 2.0 and all but im not sure if you need an american account to be able to purchase things from the appStore. i am australian and therefore have an australian itunes account but i noticed that aussie itunes doesnt support anything to do with iphones and ipod touches such as ringtones and the january software update. there has been no sign of aussie itunes accomodating for the ipod touch or iphone and im not sure if it will for the appStore...any info?

    I'm Canadian and It's somewhat the same here. There is alot of content on iTunes that we get late or don't get at all. Case in point, the recent update to iTunes for renting Movies.

    i'm in Australia as well and got the January app pack, (when i upgraded to 1.1.4 it gave me the offer)
    From memory, although we don't have access to the rental store, i think i remember seeing something in the movies tab of my iPod about "Rented Movies"
    As for the app store, i don't know what will happen ... you'd think that it would be a world-wide thing??

    My guess is that it will have a slight delay (just like the iTunes update and January pack? =/)

    But other than that, I don't think the AppStore will just be in the US...all they really need to do is to set conversion rates and stuff =/.

    And last I checked from the SDK event, it was gonna be international (someone asked Steve Jobs at the end...after the event was over)

    I'm Canadian to! I can still rent movies and buy movies/tv show by using US gift cards. I recommend people do that if they want there movies. Thats the problem, Canada has a big piracy industry but they wonder why. We can't purchase any content so we are forced to go to *******s and stuff, besides the fact that its not illegal lol.
