PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Earlier this year, it became known that the Palm Pre, engineered by a number of ex-Apple engineers, could interface with Apple's iTunes as if it was an iPod. Everybody more or less expected Apple to block the Pre from syncing with iTunes, but I don't think any of us had anticipated just how forthright Apple would be about it.

"You mean while kicking and screaming, when they were legally obligated to?"

I know of at least one counter-example to this: Apple have a fairly heavy investment in LLVM &Clang (employing plenty of developers), both of which are BSD licensed. There's no "legal obligation" for Apple to release their changes, but they do.
