Internet, iTunes issues

Confused Apple customers are taking their questions to the Cupertino-based company's own support forums, asking about a potential bug in the new MacBook Pro's AirPort Extreme cards as well an inability for some Windows iTunes users to access the iTunes Store in certain ways. Numerous users on Apple's support forums are discussing a lack of internet connectivity from MacBook Pros, even on networks where other Macs can connect unhindered. Further issues with Windows iTunes users suggest that the company's online store may be experiencing technical difficulties related to searches. Users are reporting sporadic connectivity with "Network connection timed out" errors when searching for content on the iTunes Store, and have discovered several temporary tricks that seem improve connectivity for some users. Apple has yet to offer a solution to the problem, but told one user that the company is aware of the issue and is working to remedy the situation.

    Most Likely

    Most of the Internet stuff Apple does (out with .mac) is handled by Akamai. But the store purchases are handled in Cupertino, so it's most likely an issue with Apple's internet access, or bank links to support online transactions (keep in mind that Apple asks for authority for more than the # of songs you are buying, so users who've been using iTunes Store for a while may have been experience than new systems/users.
