Well, you have to give them credit for having some cojones. Palm today announced that, a week after Apple cut off 3rd party access to the iTunes store, the Pre can now, again, sync with the software. Humorously, they call the fix "Resolves an issue" like Apple wasn’t actively trying to block the Pre from using iTunes. The ball is now in Apple’s court.
A third party, the EFF, has been rattling its saber about this issue as well.
