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.

No company should ever use another ones vendor_id or pretend to be another device. Palm is wrong on that one for me.

Preventing a device from working with your software isn't productive in my opinion and might also affect your own users. I think I would try other software, but keep using the Palm pre. If more users are like me...

Personally I would advise Palm to use its own vendor_id and Apple to open up iTunes to other devices, but keep syncing very basic and create extras that only work with iPods.

To make it clear, I don't have or use any of the devices/software we're talking about.
