New iTunes update kills Palm Pre Syncing

Palm says it wont hurt them

The latest version of iTunes (8.2.1) will disappoint many Palm Pre owners.


Apple has included "patches" to prevent music syncing with the competing device. Palm users were in a happy mood when they found that they were able to sync the Palm with their iTunes library. However I am sure that everyone knew that this day would come.


After all Apple is known for its fierce control over their products. What is funny when you look at it is that while Apple (and many of their fans) accuse Microsoft of controlling and monopolistic behavior; when they are the ones in control they show the same tendencies.


It is not likely that Palm will really care about this, but Apple iTunes consumers might as they are the ones that are going to be hurt in the end.
