    Re: Apple Releases iTunes 8.2.1

    and to think the pre had this ability for quite a while, i think it was just right for apple to do this and should have happened a long time ago.

    i mean why would palm be okay to save money on product development by riding on apple software?

    Thanks for the heads up guys! This would really suck if I had a Pre. Oh well, another good reason to stick to an iPhone.

    I updated yesterday, though I was actually surprised when Software Update found the iTunes 8.2.1 version, since it wasn't on the front page of macrumors.com. After some clicking around, I saw it in Page 2.

    Nothing new, really, probably just that Palm Pre issue as well as some iPhone 3.0 stuff.

    in addition to AlexG posted

    The cat-and-mouse game between Apple and Palm continues today with Palm's announcement that it has released webOS 1.1, bringing a host of new features and improvements to the Palm Pre including restoration of iTunes media syncing.

    Oh, and one more thing: Palm webOS 1.1 re-enables Palm media sync. That's right -- you once again can have seamless access to your music, photos and videos from the current version of iTunes (8.2.1).

    While the Palm Pre running webOS was initially able to sync directly with iTunes by presenting itself as an iPod, Apple disabled the functionality just last week with the release of iTunes 8.2.1. The iTunes syncing spat is the latest in a series of incidents between the two competitors, as Palm has hired several former Apple executives and engineers to lead the company's turnaround and Apple has issued veiled threats against Palm regarding intellectual property contained in iPhone that has appeared in similar forms in the Palm Pre.

    The full list of new features available in webOS 1.1 can be found in Palm's release notes for the update.

    it had happened to me as well. i downloaded it and installed it pero upon nearing its completion, a prompt would tell 'to verify that i have sufficient authorization something...' i decided to uninstall it, and reinstall 8.2 version. epro ganon na din nangyari. what hurts like hell is that i could no longer open my itunes and a trojan horse threat message from avg would popped in. hay, sana di na lang ako nag update. as of this writing, wala pa ding nangyayari. i dont know what to do. help!
