Firstly, why would anyone want to do this? I find iTunes to be a cumbersome and
It'd be easier to simply have a directory on your hard disk full of your MP3s
and to use Windows Explorer to copy the files across to the phone or media
This also allows you to use the Pre or other media device on any PC that you
access. iTunes doesn't allow this.
As for Palm's whinging:
'Palm spokeswoman Leslie Letts said Apple's move is a "direct blow to their
users, who will be deprived of a seamless synchronisation experience." For a
workaround, she noted, Pre owners can stick to the older version of iTunes, move
music from computers to a Pre with a USB cable or consider third-party music
Why doesn't Palm write its own sync software? Its Palm Desktop software that I
used with my PDA was an excellent program and its Hotsync conduit worked a hell
of a lot better than MS's ActiveSync as an example.
And I wonder when we'll be getting the Pre.
