Many of us take for granted the ease with which we buy music via iTunes, but the reality is that Apple’s virtual storefront is only available in less than two dozen countries around the world. That may soon be changing, with a report claiming 10 more European Union countries will soon be added to the mix.
One thing U.S. customers often take for granted is the ability to head to websites like Apple.com and order products with a few clicks. Today, four more countries will now be enjoying such a convenience, as United Arab Emirates, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland light up their own Apple Online Stores at long last.
Following on the heels of a weekend rumor, Apple’s U.S. online store opened its virtual doors this morning with a new entry to its lineup -- the same old iPhone 4 you already know and love, available in black or white, 16GB or 32GB, but with one very different change.

I bought an iPad while I was on vacation in Australia, but now I’m back in the States. However, my iPad’s autocorrect feature insists that I spell words with U.K. English instead of U.S. English. For example, “organise” and “colour” instead of “organize” and “color.” Do I have to buy a new iPad in America to get the U.S. spellchecker?
