Accessing iTunes Store...
This has been on for the last two hours. I'm going to assume that all of the iTunes servers are indeed offline and will be for the near future. I think DRM has a little bit to do with this. The Treo, bad as it was, never had issues like this after resets. While upgrading the firmware was more involved, there was no iTunes verification stage to be completed.
I'm just feeling really dejected right now. It just seems that the perfect convergence device is something beyond our capability. A portable medida player, phone, web browser, e-book reader, and gaming system is just too much to ask from one device. The Treo came up short, and now Apple has as well. I hope I'm wrong, but this is really frustrating.
