Hardware, Embedded Systems We have a new chapter in the Palm Pre and iTunes saga. We all remember that the Pre could sync with iTunes, but that Apple wasn't particularly keen on this. The Cupertino company issued an iTunes which intentionally broke Pre syncing, but Palm retorted by re-enabling it not long after. Palm also sent a complaint to the USB Implementers Forum about Apple's behaviour, but the USB-IF squarely sides with Apple.

Palm should be ashamed of themselves, as this also effects their customers as well, that were counting on this just working.

What Palm should have done when advertising how the Pre syncs with iTunes is just done as RIM did, and code a sync app that accesses iTunes' xml file. It works fine, as does The Missing Sync (which coincidentally will also work with the Pre).
