It may not be the kind of big, well-promoted event we're used to from Apple, but a report claims Cupertino is heading to Moscow for an iTunes event on Tuesday evening which could finally bring the company's music offerings to Russians.
Labor Day (and the summer season) is now behind us, and things should start heating up this week in the tech world with new product announcements from Nokia, Motorola and Amazon.

It's Labor Day here in the United States, and that means the summer is pretty much over for most of us as kids head back to school and everyone starts looking ahead to the winter holiday season. It's also a relatively quiet day for tech news, but we managed to scrape up a few interesting stories from over the weekend so soak 'em up on this Monday, September 3, 2012.
With not one but two feature films now in development on the life of Steve Jobs, interest in the Apple co-founder continues unabated since his death last fall. If you'd rather watch the man himself speak, prepare to spend $3.99 on iTunes.
Although we finally got a 64-bit version of iTunes last fall with the arrival of version 10.6, it wasn't quite the sweeping overhaul that many of us were hoping for. According to a new report, that may be coming soon enough.
It may seem hard to believe for those of us who take it for granted, but there are still many parts of the world where the iTunes Store is not available. Thankfully, there are now 12 less places without it across Asia today.
Who knew “jailbreak” could be considered a dirty word? Apparently someone at Apple thought so, which is why the word was censored from the iTunes Store for the better part of Wednesday night and Thursday. Everything is back to normal now, but the hacker community sure got a kick out of it while the fun lasted. So what else is making news today? Glad you asked. Read on for everything else this Thursday, May 17, 2012 has to offer.
A New Yorker is suing Apple, claiming the company double billed him for an iTunes music purchase and then refused to offer a refund, citing its own Terms of Service -- and if he gets his way, it will become a class action.
I just started using Google Chrome as my main browser, and I love it. But the first time I clicked a link to an iTunes Store page, I saw a dialog asking if Chrome could open the link in another application (iTunes). I clicked “Do Nothing,” and checked the box for “Don’t ask me about this again,” but now I wish I hadn’t. Even if I click the “Open in iTunes” button on one of those preview pages, nothing happens, and I have to manually open iTunes and search the store for the thing I’m looking for. I can’t find an option to reset that setting in Chrome. Any help?
