once again Apple wants to make using iTunes as inconvenient as possible. Took them years to adopt DRM-free content and now they don't want to let you use YOUR music, that you PAID THEM to have, be used in a way that doesn't let them milk you for even more cash.
I hate Apple's business practices but love their products lol :P

^What are you talking about!?
The music you download from apple all gets stored in a folder on your computer.
you can just manually move the music over to your phone.
Palm is just too lazy to build a syncing program of their own.I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

Could someone tell me how this is affecting jailbreaking in any way? I just don't see it.

Apple is greedy cool the way to go about it is let stuff sync just charge for it ok itunes is free you want to sync your apple device its free you want to sync your ....whatever pay $10 per device and everyone is happy (except us iPhone users who want to jb and get all the cool stuff free)

iTunes is only popular by default. I don't think anyone thinks it is a great program, except for a few Ed Hardy d-bags.
It's only essential for jailbreak because that's the way Apple laid down the playing field. It's just a crappy music app.

Its really funny that palm is being this underhanded in this situation...This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

why doesnt palm just create there own itunes and enable an option to transfer your purchases to that software instead of working around apple? i used to have a palm centro and the phone sucked, no good games, no good hacks returned it 2 weeks after and got the 3g much betterOriginally Posted by ??????

I realize this website covers Apple products exclusively, but that's no reason to give them a pass when they do wrong. Taking their side over Palm here is really the wrong call. Regardless of their motivations, Palm is on the side of consumer freedom and therefore also truth/justice. I'm sure their not being selfless, but they're still doing a good thing anyways.
iTunes, at least for windows, is pretty horrible anyways. The only reason anyone would actually care about this functionality is if they were switching from an iPhone to a Pre -- nobody in their right mind would use iTunes for windows if they could avoid it.
I, for one, am stuck with iTunes because, let's face it, the Pre just isn't that good of a phone. Oh, it's nice in many ways, in terms of software they've done a great job -- probably better than what Apple had at release. But the hardware? It's terrible. The battery life is awful. The keyboard is carpal tunnel waiting to happen and the overall design just leaves too much to be desired.
At any rate, this means that the whole iTunes syncing thing is really just a gimmick. Nobody needs it, but it's a great way to get free advertising every few weeks. Every time there's a story about you re-enabling this feature, it's just a great big reminder to everyone "Hey, we're Palm and we have a phone we want you to buy. And hey, we're sticking up for the little guy too!" So when you make outraged posts like this, you're really just kinda feeding into Palm's strategy anyways. Just some food for thought.

What Palm is doing is just shameful and makes the company look cheap. Bypassing very clear legal language that states that this practice isn't allowed shows that Palm is desperate for attention. Very sad indeed.........
