I downloaded a Nav program just before I left work today. It is on my office Mac. I am home and want to put it on my home desktop so I can download it when I get the new iPhone, possibly on Monday. Even though I can see it on my "account" as having been purchased I cannot get it to my home desktop. Do I have to pay for it again to have it on both my computers?

If you just "buy" it again using the same account, you will be notified that you've already bought the item but can download it again without being charged.

I did that and it said I had too many computers authorized. I need to somehow de-authorize older computers I no longer have. I see I can do this to any computer I am using, but how do I look at a list of "all" of my computers to deselect the correct ones?

You don't.

Use the iTunes Store support menu item to request a re-set of all authorizations.

You'll have to re-authorize the computers you wish to use the account on.

Keep in mind that you can only request a reset of your authorizations once every year.

I always assumed the once per year limit is to curb some type of abuse, but now that I think about it, I'm having trouble seeing exactly how you could abuse a more liberal (even unlimited) reset policy.
