Palm Pre owners might find a small window of opportunity to sync their device with iTunes for easy music browsing, listening and downloading.Â In short, someone figured out how to have the Palm Pre appear as an iPod to iTunes by chancing the VendorID of the Palm.Â Meaning – iTunes thinks its an iPod, but it really isn’t.
I seriously doubt this was something done by Palm, but rather a hacker out there doing what hackers do.
First you have Palm claiming it’s a USB compliant device for a different vendor, I don’t think that will fly.Â Second, you have Palm tricking iTunes thinking it’s an iPod – Apple wont be too happy about that. Third, it shows a desperate move on Palms behalf if it was built in.Â For all the above, it probably wont last long, Apple will figure out how to block it.
