When we put together our iTunes wishlist, item number three on the list got wistful that someday Apple might consider allowing non-iPod devices to sync with their music player.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Apple and Palm have been playing a little cat-and-mouse over Palm's decision to spoof iTunes so the popular music player will sync music with the new Palm Pre, and now the Pre scores another one. Apple's release of iTunes 8.2.1 broke the Pre's syncing, and though you could still find ways to get you music on the Pre, Palm strikes back by re-enabling iTunes sync in the latest WebOS update. At this point, we'd imagine the folks at Palm figure their users are way more willing and tolerant than iTunes users at large to update time and again so they can get their music—where iTunes users may get a little annoyed by the time Apple's rolling out iTunes 8.2.11 just to block those Palm syncers.
