Podcast: iTunes cuts off Palm Pre sync

Larry Magid's Tech Talk podcast about how Apple's iTunes no longer syncs with the new Palm Pre smartphone.

Just before Palm started shipping its new Pre smartphone, it surprised us all by announcing that customers would be able to sync their phones to a PC or Mac using Apple's iTunes software.

I wondered at the time how long it would take Apple's lawyers or engineers to put an end to that practice. Turns out the engineers won. The latest upgrade to Apple's iTunes software no longer recognizes the Pre as if it were an iPod.

Pre users can still synchronize their device to a computer, but not with the newest version of iTunes.
