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.

I personally think the whole ipod/itunes thing is as overrated as Obama's speaking abilities.

itunes is unintuitive, intrusive, and way too proprietary while ipods are overpriced.

I do get a big laugh out of the way Apple's marketing sucker's people in though.
They portray themselves as the "hip" or "alternative"..alternative to everything else while being just as ruthlessly market-hording and profit-oriented as Microsoft - except they're even more aggressive in the hardware arena.

I'm just suprised they haven't made a game console yet.
