Apple launched its Japanese iTunes Music Store last week. I had the chance to go through some of their tracks and it was interesting to find Detective Conan Soundtrack and Sonic Drive in there. What I found particularly strange though was the fact that “Amr Diab” is listed under their Pop catagory! Since when do the Japanese listen to Amr Diab? Even though I’m not exactly a big fan of arabic music, I was disappointed when I found out that there weren’t any of his songs listed. Maybe this is a sign that sometime in the future Apple might consider launching an Arabic Store. Wouldn’t that be great?
Bah, who am I kidding.
