OK Palm, it was cute the first time you cracked iTunes to sync with the Pre. And Apple, I guess I can understand why you'd want to keep control over your software. But really guys? Still? You look silly.
When webOS 1.2 didn't re-fix the syncing compatibility that iTunes 9 re-broke, it almost looked like this bizarre little Apple/Palm standoff had finally just, you know, puttered out. Well, nope, for some reason! Cue webOS 1.2.1.
What does it mean for you when the USB Implementer's Forum tells Palm that they should stop spoofing an iPod in order to get their Palm Pre to sync with iTunes? What should you do now? A couple things.
Did you hear about that Palm Pre update yesterday? The one that re-enables iTunes syncing? Yes, probably, but Palm would still very much like to emphasize to you, and now the USB Implementers Forum, that it's fighting the good fight.
