back to article US bests UK in iTunes Xmas giftiness

Santa Jobs has opened his big bag of iTunes toys and come up with an album of Christmas goodies for good little US girls and fanbois.

Thank God

We were spared that. Phew, close one. I still shudder at the sight of Barry Manilow in the artwork.

UK users get one too

Although it's only 8 tracks. Perhaps Charlotte Church is worth several US artists, or something.

And no, I haven't downloaded it. Bah humbug.

You!

I blame you, El Reg, YOU! For pissing off the Apple so no goodies for the UK kids.

Shame.

What we really want to know is

Is this Jobs' own choice of playlist or did someone else pick it?

Did someone say 'nobody is buying this crap, lets give it away as someone out there is bound to like it and want more'

Genius marketing move.

Jeebus H Christ on a bike, look at that track listing. Never mind free, I would happily pay almost any amount of money *not* to have to download that awful piece of shit.

(Where's the "Pass the sick-bag" icon when you need one?)

Bah Humbug!

What an appalling collection of dross - ooh, love the Apple counter-culture song collection (sarcasm alert). I don't usually look gift horses in the mouth, but none of that lot is cluttering up my iPhone/iPod.

Why does King Jobs HATE the US?

Barely Manly. Help me! You Brits remember how we (the US) sent you stuff to help during WWII. Can we send some more 'things'? Please???

Dam - I was hoping you had forgotten about Iraq and Afghanistan...

OK I'll just drink heavily...

Do you Americans remember the term "lend-lease"?

Close call

I'd rather listen to whatever garbage we are going to be subjected to by the f**king x-factor winner than any of that. You've gotta think that us in the UK are getting a better deal, I mean it's quite obviously 8 less on the crapometer.

As Catherine Tate's Nan would say "What a load of old sh*t"

itunes for windows really sucks

I tried to download it, and I think the songs downloaded OK, but everytime the 8mb LP element downloads, I get error -23. At least the poor thing tried to download it everyday since Friday, so A for effort.

Error -23

I get this on my Mac too - so it's not just Windows... my iTunes music is stored on a network drive, so that may be an issue; but I can't imagine why.
