Odds and Ends: Apple shipping Microsoft Office 2004 to customers; iTunes "free song of the day" problem

Odds and Ends: Apple shipping Microsoft Office 2004 to customers; iTunes "free song of the day" problem

Apple shipping Microsoft Office 2004 to customers Some customers are starting to receive notice that their copies of Office 2004 are shipping from Apple. MacFixIt reader Amy received this message:

"The following products shipped on 05/10/2004. Transit time will depend upon whether you have chosen standard or premium freight options. If your order is shipping standard freight, it should arrive within 10 days of shipment: T9188LL/A  MICROSOFT OFFICE2004 ACAD-USA"

iTunes "free song of the day" problem MacFixIt reader Sam reports that there is a charge appearing next to one of the iTunes Music Store's free songs of the day, and that he is unable to remove the item from his shopping cart:

"About 10:30 PM Monday evening, 10 May, I went to download the latest iTunes free download (Simon Stinger's "French Connection" from the "Some Kinda Voodoo" album). The song was placed in my shopping cart, but with an attached price of $7.92. I'm unable to delete the song from the cart. The entry appears as one line for the album with a triangle on the left side; clicking the triangle discloses the song on a second line, much like the list view mode in the Finder. I've sent email to Apple about this as I'm neither able to delete the entry from my shopping cart nor re-add the (now listed as Free) song (I get an error about the song already being in my cart). Note that initially the song was not listed as "free" in the music store even though there was a link to it from the 'free song of the day' on the front page of the store."
