Yes, Ruby, iTunes 9 Kills Palm Pre Sync Dead. Again.

Yes folks, given the release of iTunes 9 today, our sibling site rushed out to check and surehawtdang, Palm Pre sync is deader than dead dead... again!

Will Palm, also again, pick up this latest, brick filled gauntlet from Apple and re-enable Pre Sync, maybe on the molecular level this time?

Sigh. We hope they don't. Their resources are better spent, you know, making the Pre and Pixi even more spectacular. But given the odd father/son issues between Jobso and Ruby -- and for the sake of fun internet soap opera everywhere -- they probably will.

Game. Back. On.
