Palm Pre evicted from iTunes (yet again)

Stop us if you've heard this one

High performance access to file storage

Apple's Thursday update to iTunes - version 9.0.2 - yet again kicks the Palm Pre off Cupertino's media-sync reservation.

At least that's the word from pre|central.net. Palm did not immediiately respond to our request for confirmation, but considering the long and contentious will-sync/won't-sync back-and-forth between Palm and Apple, we see little reason to doubt that Palm's webOS 1.2.1 fix of early this month has indeed been unfixed.

While we at The Reg consider it our duty to keep you, dear readers, up to date on this ongoing sync-squabble, we - and we assume many of you, as well - are getting more than a wee bit weary of what has become as much of a publicity-generating brouhaha as a David vs. Goliath rhubarb.

Note to Palm: just write your own damn iTunes Library–accessing software. If RIM can do it with Desktop Manager's BlackBerry Media Sync utility, why can't you?

The Reg tires. ®
