The Ignorant Music Store

What kind of pan-EU store leaves out half the known European Union? I don’t know about you, but in my world, Luxembourg buys less music than Sweden.

Update: I am aware of the Euro issue. I’m not thinking that they won’t ever release stores for the rest of us (heh!). I know that they will probably release those later on, but if I’m bitter about anything, it’s that they couldn’t even make one or two non-Euro stores into the launch. I’m convinced that there are at least one more EU store that’s just waiting to be released, and that I hope it’ll be released alongside the Canadian store in November.


  1. But Sweden (along with Denmark, where I live), don’t use Euro… That, at least according to the Danish head Apple guy, is the reason for Scandinavia being snubbed.

    Yay conservatives!

  2. If the argument for bypassing Sweden, Denmark and others is tied to the Euro, it’s a stupid one. Today Apple don’t seem to mind us paying in Kroner in their Online Apple Store, so why not in the iTunes Music Store.

  3. Are you serious? Sweden is the sexiest country, ever! How could they leave it out?
