Ever since Palm announced that the Pre would sync with iTunes people thought it was a great idea… but didn’t think of what apple would do in return. Well in hindsight it was bad of palm to use that as a selling point since we all know that Apple is gonna fight them each time Palm fixes it. Anyway that’s not what this post is about 🙂
The whole Palm vs Apple sync thing reminded me of the good ol days… it seems that before the iPod even existed you could sync existing on the market players with iTunes.
The supported devices were: Nakamichi SS2, Nomad II,Nomad Jukebox,Psa[Play,Rio500,Rio600,Rio800,RioOne…. but once the iPod shipped Apple pulled that feature out of iTunes so they could sell more iPod.
Either way the iPod wasn’t first…. and if you think about it you can see why Apple only wants the iPod to sync with iTunes… protect the user experience.
