Apple To Palm: It's On. The Pre Is Locked Out Of iTunes
Posted by: Arik Hesseldahl on July 15
Reports are coming in that Apple's latest update to its iTunes software has locked out Palm's Pre. Precentral had the first reports on the matter that I saw, and now Apple is confirming the matter itself: "iTunes 8.2.1 is a free software update that provides a number of important bug fixes," says Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris. "It also disables devices falsely pretending to be iPods, including the Palm Pre. As we've said before, newer versions of Apple's iTunes software may no longer provide syncing functionality with unsupported digital media players."
