BadApple takes new bite at iTunes

A few weeks ago, an anonymous program called BadApple appeared online allowing Podcasts to be downloaded through iTunes, a bit before Apple did the same thing itself. Nobody took credit, but many of the signs on the site and in the software pointed to founder (and current Linspire honcho) Michael Robertson.

Now BadApple is back with features that allow iTunes to sync playlists and music collections to MP3 players other than the iPod, something that Apple doesn't ordinarily support. Robertson wrote about the software on his blog earlier this week, but stopped short of taking credit.
