Apple Statement on iTunes 8.2.1 and Pre Syncing

Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris, in a statement to BusinessWeek’s Arik Hesseldahl:

“iTunes 8.2.1 is a free software update that provides a number of important bug fixes. It also disables devices falsely pretending to be iPods, including the Palm Pre. As we’ve said before, newer versions of Apple’s iTunes software may no longer provide syncing functionality with unsupported digital media players.”

You can’t accuse them of being coy about it.
