Palm Issues Update and Smacks Back at Apple

boxingPalm Pre users lost their ‘native’ iTunes syncing ability when Apple, as expected, issued an update to iTunes last week. Now Palm is issuing a counterpunch with a new update that apparently restores the capability. This will probably go several rounds before one or both companies gives up the ghost and things get settled out.

For the life of me, I don’t see why Apple doesn’t just license the use of iTunes and move on. That’s an everybody wins situation, but maybe I’m being naive. But then on the other hand, Palm users have other options of getting their music content on the device, I’m guessing that this tit-for-tat will probably only be a real battle on the corporate level after awhile.
