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 needs to stop the iTunes Sillyness...

I would rather see them contribute to something open source like Banshee and use that for syncing and media management. I feel that Banshee has the most potential over something like Songbird which tries to do too much in my opinion. I know they have Mac versions of Banshee and supposedly have a Windows version nearly ready to go. If they could throw some support behind Banshee, everyone would benefit with a high quality music management app that is not controlled by Apple.

As I said above...I feel that Palm is doing it more for the countless accessories than for iTunes.
