Apple Well, this is an interesting double standard. Remember Apple's reaction to Palm trying to tap into iTunes? They were pretty pissed, right? Well, it seems that in Apple's world, it's not okay to access their services unauthorised, but when Apple needs to do the same to someone else's services, it's suddenly not a problem. As it turns out, Apple violated Facebook's terms of service, knowingly, and willingly.

You're real touchy today. I was commenting on your statement:

iTunes was never designed by Apple as something to be used with non-Apple products.

If it came out before there was an iPod, then it's impossible to be designed for only Apple hardware.

They didn't even create the original, they bought it off someone else.

I just think it's bad form to lock out other vendors that are just trying to sync with iTunes, when it was possible in the past. They just did it to push iPods.

They also allowed Motorola to have iTunes on their phone -- until iPhone came out, of course.

I just think Apple looks really whiny (like a certain other commenter here) when they turnaround is on them
