What a weird comment to make in a forum dedicated to Apple rumors.

Oh wait, it's from the reincarnation of sapporobaby...

Nevermind

This list predates iTunes on Windows. If you had a close look at the players listed you would realize that they are all years old. Yes, years ago Apple allowed third-party players to be directly synced from within iTunes. But that was at a time when running iTunes involved buying a Mac (ie, hardware by Apple).

And how much does iTunes sells for?

Because it's an unsupported, undocumented hack. There are all sorts of obvious problems with that.

And yet you fail to mention a single one.

Well, for one Apple isn't obliged to support undocumented hacks in any subsequent releases of iTunes, so the Pre could loose its iTunes sync at any time. And that isn't a matter of evil Apple going out of their way to punish Palm, it's just a fact that if you're going to use undocumented hacks (apparently, in this case, hacking the USB vendor ID tag to make the Pre look like an iPod to the host machine) to achieve your ends you're always living on borrowed time. That's bad for Pre users.

And of course Palm could have used the Apple provided iTunes XML file to make their own, documented and stable sync solution, but chose to simply have the Pre masquerade as an iPod instead. So it's not as if Apple is prohibiting anyone from syncing with iTunes or forcing Palm's hand-- Palm just decided it would be cooler if the Pre acted exactly like an iPod.
