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.

iphone/ipod touch are different from older ipods for the specific reason that apple wanted to block these programs from controlling them.

try an iphone with any of those and see how far you get. i jailbreaked my GF's iphone and so far the only thing of value it did was let her use a locked AT&T phone with optus in Australia.

this may work but i haven't got a windows pc to try it on at the mo. as to whether it puts music in there in a playable (to the ipod database) form i can't say.
