    I've just bought the 32gig touch and have discovered that the URL address for Yahoo when you go there on the weather page defaults to Yahoo Italy ratherthan the UK which is what I want.

    Anyone else have this issue and anyone know how to resolve it?

    cheers

    I bought it from John Lewis (shop rather than on-line).

    I called the store and got put through to Apple Care who told me to reset the iPod.

    I did this and visited the store the same day. I connected to the WIFI connection in the shop and checked and it went to the Yahoo UK site, not the Italy site as it had been.

    However, I was playing about with the iPod last night and clicked the Yahoo button in the Stocks window to see what would happen. It went to the Italian Yahoo site!

    Now...this may or may not be related, but my ISP is Tiscali at home. Could the ipod detect this as foreign?

    It only seems to be at home it's jumping to the Italian Yahoo site (although I've only tested it at a couple of other WIFI spots).
