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.

Very wrong; the Palm Pre doesn't clone any VendorID; it still shows up as made by Palm's vendor ID. Which is probably what iTunes 8.2.1 blocks

I have read different things on that, but even if they "only" cloned an device id, it still nowhere near acceptable and still a strong violation of the USB standard.
