Purchasing "foreign" music on iTunes

Since iTunes won't let me purchase music from other territories, what are some good services that have worldwide coverage so I can download the tracks I want? If such a service even exists. [more inside]

Manually Managing an iPod in iTunes 5

I have iTunes 5 installed on two machines, one at work, one at home, with my iPod set to sync automatically to the iTunes library on my home machine. When using iTunes 4.x, I was able to attach my iPod to my work machine and then configure the iPod (in the iTunes preferences) to 'manually' update, rather than automatically, enabling me to play files directly off my iPod on my work machine. When I returned to my home machine, I would switch the home machine's iTunes/iPod settings back to 'update automatically', causing iTunes to update the files on the home machine with a new Last Played date and Play Count. iTunes 5, however, seems to have a bug in this regard: it notes a random 10 or 15-song selection of tracks played via the work machine's iTunes 5, but that's all. A day's worth of listening to tracks isn't logged as played, messing up Smart Playlists that grab music I haven't heard in a while. 1) Is this unusual or universal 2) Any fixes? [more inside]

When will Apple stop supporting OS9?

As a longtime Mac user, I still depend on several OS9 applications for my work. I've heard, though, that Apple's new Macs will stop supporting OS9, which is bad news for me. My goal is to buy the last PowerBook that rolls off the assembly line that still supports OS9 - this way, my OS9-friendly Mac will last as long as possible. My question: can anyone tell me when Apple is making the changeover to OS9-less Macs?

Donating an old Apple Quadra 630

I am trying to figure out how to dispose a functioning Apple Quadra 630. I never used it much. It has been sitting in a box all these years. The CMOS battery probably needs to be replaced. But other than that it runs just fine. I was thinking of giving it away on local freecycle.org chapter. Then I started thinking if I can donate it to somebody who can really make use it. Most groups accepting donations seems to want Windows machines or newer Apple machines. I am looking for suggestions. Should I just give it away on freecycle?

I want dialup access to the internet via my cable modem connection at home, more or less rolling my own ISP...

I have a Mac at home running 10.3.9. I would like to plug a telephone line into the modem port and be able to call in to it while I'm on the road using my laptop. I don't need or want access to the files, I don't want or need to see the Tibook's screen, or control the computer at home. I just want dialup access to the internet via my cable modem connection at home, more or less rolling my own ISP. Is this possible? If not with my Mac, what about one of those AirPorts? I heard some of them have modems but some of them don't, anyone else doing anything like this? [more inside]

Should I RAM one slot, or two? Huh huh.

I'm thinking about buying a new iMac G5, and I'd like to bump the RAM up to 1GB from the standard 512MB. The Apple customization menu gives you the option of getting 1GB in two DIMMs or one; the latter is $50 more expensive. Is there any performance benefit in having all the RAM in one place, or is it just a question of keeping a slot open?
