iTunes 7.7 is released, and people have quickly found the app store that’s not yet on the US store’s front page.
Of interest, Singapore has appeared under the list of international stores, and it shows the App Store directly, without music or videos available for purchase.

Think of Apple as the Singapore of the technology world. It is impeccably clean, very functional, supportive of capitalism — and ruthless with miscreants.

What rubbish is that? You jolly well know that everyone is looking forward to use your products and yet you chose to delay the launch (iPhone was launched in US in June this year and last month in Europe). To make it worse, you are sending your 'Imperial Storm-Troopers' to sniff out all the 'rebellions' sellers in Singapore. This is way too much! I mean why must the ang mos enjoy the best things of your products before they slowly make their way to us Asians! Are we your secondary consumers? Since you don't treasure our maket, what rights do you have to stop others from selling them who dying to own them. Now, you are impending the free market forces of distributing the goods and service to your consumers outside US.

Here I am paying tribute to the greatest computer company in the world - Apple Computer. Here's to the insanely great 30 years that has come and gone, and to many many more to come.
Recommended by yuhui: "It's the 30th anniversary of the makers of the Macintosh and iPod (and Quicktime and iTunes and Newton and Apple II...). Think Different."

Creative's main competitor is Apple. It's always good to focus on the toughest guy, the top-tier guy out there. That way, we can at least be a strong number two. But I think the main reason why Apple is so popular is because of its blanket marketing. They've got billions of dollars I don't have. The market is exploding right now, and it's a crucial one we have to capture. So I have dedicated around $100 million in marketing this year. It's still a lot smaller compared to what Apple has spent, but I think it's especially important to give our MP3 players our number-one attention.
Unlike Apple, however, we are not going to spend our money trying to convince people that we are good. We are going to spend our money telling people what we offer.
Sim Wong Hoo (and other CEOs) talks about competing with Apple's iPod for the MP3 player market.
