    I thought that all the iPAD programs are available for every one in the world. Free and not free. I already bought some from the store and was charged on my Credit card.
    Now I am finding out that from my location (Israel) I can't get all of them
    Can't get : " PBS for iPAD" in:
    PBS for iPad for iPad on the iTunes App Store
    Can't see "photozap"

    Any way to overcome that problem ?

    What happens when you click "Change Store"? Does it take you to the U.S. store and let you purchase/download it there? If it's your credit card they won't accept, I have heard that if you use iTunes gift cards, they will accept that.

    It's just licensing agreements, some programs are only licensed to be sold in the US.

    Just like when I try to watch a show on History Channel or Discovery's website, it blocks my Japanese IP because I'm not in the US and won't let me watch the show.

    Thing is, that it is looking for another Login.
    Meaning I need to enter another USER/Password
    I am afraid that in that case it may delete my current applications from the iTune.
    But any way it looks for a USER from the USA, on specific applications. Don't know why.

    Because America is the best. We have the best ghettos, the best laws, and the best looting folk this side of..the moon I guess.

    Did you mean best looking? Or looting? If you said looking, I beg to differ. Unless you are into fat people.

    If you said looting, yes, America has some pretty good looters during riots.
    LOL.

    lmao ... that is a true classic.

    As far as the PBS app goes it might have something to do with the fact that it is dealing with public broadcasting (read: US tax payer supported) that is specific to the US. There might be some type of licensing issue for people outside the US.

    Looting, in relation to the ghettos :D

    Lets not forgot our goverment owned auto makers, our hicks in the central US that are pushing E85, and Starbucks.

    Oh, and we have Apple. One day, Apple and Google will ask Facebook for a 3-sum in taking over the world. I wanna be where they be..maybe grandfatherd into an easier lifestyle.
