Palm to Apple: "Bring it ON!"

Apple released iTunes 8.2.1 few weeks ago to block Palm Pre from syncing. They have all the right reasons to do so because they want iTunes exclusive to iPod and iPhone, no intrusions from other competitors.

It seems Apple's decision made Palm a bit anxious of loosing their fan base because syncing with iTunes is one of the biggest features of their product and they just can't afford to get kicked by Apple, so now they decided to return fire at Apple with a new release of webOS that is said to break Apple's wall and return their Pre back to iTunes syncing.

This Tech-War will be so much fun to watch.

Hi,

Go to http://www.blog.com.kw and try it out and tell me what do you think about it, it's a new idea for everyone in Kuwait to post any topic in Text or Video.

It would be nice if you blog about it :)

Thanks,
Ali

I'm just thinking of the right word to use, but it's not appropriate. I keep hearing people blindly repeating Microsoft is evil, monopoly blah blah blah. I love Apple products, but what really makes me laugh is when people think they are liberating by going Apple way, and they're on the good side now.

Like this Google Voice App rejection. It's turning top techies to Android with no regrets.

Ali & Bu Yousef:
Yep pretty interesting to watch.

Bashar:
I agree Apple products are not the most convenient but they just know how to make attractive things and make them work right.
