IN ASIA: Apple rolled out its iTunes online store to a dozen Asian markets in a broad push to sell music and video to more users in the company's fastest growing region.

NEW MARKETS: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos will get their own iTunes stores. But China, which accounts for a big part of Apple's revenues, was not included.

WHAT CHANGED: Previously, Apple customers in these territories could only access the company's App Store, a separate platform used to download applications for their iPods, iPhones and iPads.
