iTunesitis ? now blocks Macs completely. If you try to visit the site with any Mac web browser, including IE, you get the following message:

&quote; In order to take full advantage of's offerings you must be on a Windows Operating System using Internet Explorer version 5.0 or higher. &quote;

You actually get to see the home page, but a javascript bumps you off based on your user agent string.

<script language="Javascript">
var mac = navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Mac")>-1
var opera = navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera")>-1
//IE5+ required, netscape, macs, and opera are not supported
if (navigator.appName == "Netscape" || mac || opera) {
musicLink = false
} else {
//find out if its ie, then version 5+
var tmpIEVerInfo = navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE ") + 5;
if(tmpIEVerInfo != -1)
if(parseInt(navigator.userAgent.substring(tmpIEVerInfo, tmpIEVerInfo+1)) < 5)
musicLink = true

Use cmd-. to stop the page loading, and you can view the page's source code..
