New iTunes Update Screws Palm Pre Users

Speaking of Apple, here's a great example of them being bastards. Seems the new iTunes 8.2.1 release cripples the Palm Pre. On one hand this is Apple's software and they can do with it what they want, and one could argue that keeping other devices from faking it out and using it is in their business interests... if you like iTunes and want a smartphone, the only choice is really the iPhone/iPod and not a Palm Pre.

On the other hand, geez, are they going to get into an arms race with the 13 people who bought the Pre to battle to stop them from using the iTunes store and listening to the music they are buying from the iTunes store on non-Apple devices?

That said, anyone not see this coming? :)
