    LOL....not sure, but somehow I doubt that Jobs will be included pRon on the iTunes site. I haven't had time to upgrade iTunes yet this morning so I'm just going by reports.

    Ya, they have it a bit hidden right now. Once you are in iTunes 7.7, just type in AOL in the search. That should find you the AIM app, which you then select. Once that screen comes up, you should be apple to see the App Store directory listed and back up to it.

    So, the App Store is there, but Apple hasn't made it front and center yet.

    Some nice stuff in there.

    I brought my USB cable to work and will be tapping the UPGRADE button every 30 seconds.

    iTunes 7.7 available.

    Do not try and update from the app though. Doesn't seem to work.

    Downloading and installing now.

    Ya, you have to direct download 7.7.

    BTW....these guys are reporting that you can direct download 2.0 as well!!

    Cool! I won't be back in the office for a few hours so hopefully I'll return to see you successfully install 2.0!

    There are books galore, classics, for 99 cents in the appstore.

    Well, that's a bit of a ripoff to charge 99 cents for books that are in the public domain and available for free at gutenberg.org . Sure, charge for bestsellers and contemporary books, I'm happy to pay for that.

    That link:

    "...and are successfully downloading and running App Store apps."

    That is something I can NOT do yet.

    Awesome!!! I should be updating in the next hour or so!!!!

    Just an FYI. iTunes 7.7 will now show as an update in iTunes 7.6. It doesn't look like you have to direct download that anymore.
