“Everywhere” = “USA Only” In AppleSpeak

Apple lies!Apparently “everywhere” in Apple parlance means “anywhere in the USA.” I tried accessing the new iTunes movie rentals here in New Zealand, and iTunes only shows movies available for purchase. While it doesn’t explain this fact on Apple’s website, it was mentioned on another site that the rentals are available in the US only, and that your credit card music have a US mailing address. Apparently you can’t rent movies overseas even if you have a US credit card and a US iTunes account. DVD purchases and rentals are expensive here, and this would have been a perfect option for us as we are watching DVD rentals on my MacBookPro anyway. Damn you, Steve Jobs! Probably not The Steve’s fault; feels better to blame Hollywood.

Look for a workaround…
