Apple updated iTunes to version 8.2.1 and Apple claims to have fixed an issue explained as "addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices" which means all Palm Pilot and PalmOS based devices like the Palm Pre are no longer supported by iTunes or Apple. Which means PalmOS devices no longer sync up with Apple iTunes.

Steve Jobs spoke "We must protect our Macopoly and shut out all non-Apple music and video players." Jobs reported that the next series of updates will shut out Zune, Newton, Windows CE, PocketPC, Blackberry, and other media video and music players. Thus rendering them all obsolete.

This shocked many consumers and Steve Jobs replied back saying "We're the Mac Company, we don't care, we don't have to! If you want to play your music and videos buy an iPod or iPhone instead! We don't support third-party media players anymore! So go bite on that apple!"

Soon Apple will phase out iTunes services for Microsoft Windows and Linux devices, thus forcing people to buy Macintosh Mac OSX based systems from Apple.
