Clearly, other companies know how to sync painlessly with iTunes
music (see RIM’s Blackberry Media Sync for example), so why
doesn’t Palm develop a syncing solution for their own hardware?
The exact reason is unknown, but my guess is that it’s a
combination of things. Perhaps Palm doesn’t have the resources to
develop their own sync app. Or maybe they want some publicity. Or
maybe they just want to push Apple’s buttons. Who really knows.
But I seriously question the strategy and brains of any company
that ties critical product capabilities to the unsupported use of
their competitor’s software. I mean, really? Can it get any more
ridiculous? Can you possibly send a more mixed, less confidence-
inspiring, “we’re a bunch of hacks who can’t provide our own sync
software for our products” message to customers?
