From iTunes, Bonjour!

A glitch sends people to the iTunes Store for France

No, it's not another portal featuring a new music genre.

CNET News.com has received reports from users that a glitch in the iTunes 7.02 software brings them to the wrong version of the iTunes Store. Instead of the U.S. version, people are ending up in the iTunes Store for France, Canada and Switzerland, among others, which precludes them from viewing and downloading U.S. television shows.

The glitch is easily fixable. Simply scroll to the bottom of the iTunes Store welcome screen and choose the country you live in from the "My Store" scroll bar. Apple did not return requests for comment on why the glitch was occurring, and whether it was a bug in the iTunes 7.02 upgrade.
