Irish Nokia Music store opens but only for the Microsoft chosen few

Firefox barred. MacOS barred.

Still, you can win vouchers ranging from 1 euro to 10 euros as well as an N95. Go here.

    Crazy… I don’t understand why you would decimate your potential user base like that.

    So less than 50% of internet users can participate?

    Yeah, kind of like the rationale that has Apple at only 5% of the PC market – weird

    Apparently firefox will work using an an ‘add on’ if one wants to use it and fiddle around with it, or so I’ve heard!

    That’s just… unacceptable in 2008.

    The people that put that website together are complete fuckwits. The offer process is horrid, the instructions for same are woeful, the PIN code redemption button is halfway down the page, the PIN code input is in 4 separate fields so you can’t just copy and paste, the help section is dire, and the site in general is just plain pure shite. I just want to fucking hit someone now. Damien, it’s all your fault! 🙂

    Bring me the head of the useless buffoon who put that monstrosity together, that’s all I can say. What a talentless hack.

    The table based layout is also pretty dumb.

  9. It gets worse. If you access the site using the Music Store application on the N95-8GB, it tells you that Ireland isn’t available yet!

  10. They need to tell whoever manages to update the site.

    Seems like everyone is trying to make money from the local music scene. Eircom, 3, Vodafone and now Nokia.

    Apparently they aim to have ALL the small local bands up there “So the likes of Glen Hansard will be available”. Oscar nominated small local musician?
