BOTH! Palm shouldn't have done it, Apple shouldn't have broken it
NEITHER! In the tech game, everything changes
PALM! They shouldn't have hacked the system

I'd be upset if I were a Pre user but is anyone really surprised by this? If I were getting a Pre, I would have done so assuming that at some point iTunes connectivity could end. It's too bad for them but I really don't think anyone should be surprised or feel wronged by this.

There should be another option: I DONT CARE! Anyone buying a non-Apple device shouldn't expect it to work with iTunes. If it works, great, but if it doesn't you have nothing to complain about.
Also, the poll doesn't work on the mobile version of this site. You'd think a site dedicated to the iPhone would work right on an iPhone, right? Why not have a poll about who is to blame for that?

Back doors are left open and exploited. Think of it as technological evolution, or capitalism and innovation. If you want to hate on Palm, go ahead and hate on yellows0w, redsn0w, ultrasn0w, purplera1n, etc., etc.
I am a recent convert to Mac and the iPhone. I love their products. Absolutely love them. I just try to keep a certain level of objectivity.

Neither... Palm needs customers and being able to work with iTunes would bring some of those customers, so they had to try. Apple needs to retain them, so they had to break it. Apple needs to ensure their products are seamless and non apple products will be a hassle.

man, palm is so at fault. blackberries can sync to itunes, but they had the go ahead from apple. I mean, how hard is it to negotiate using someone elses proprietary software? Exploiting a backdoor? thats not what a huge *** company with the history of palm should do. Especially since they're trying so hard to be an iphone killer, and you turn around and make it itunes compatible? Especially if the pre is so awesome why would they anything from apple?

Not only is palm at falt, but it is even worse because they mislead alot of people into buying pre's due to its (hacked) ability to sink with itunes. Now all those same people are screwed.
Its like selling someone a counterfeit ticket to a ballgame. If it works, great. If it doesn't, the buyer (not the seller) is screwed.
Stupid and shortsighted of them. Yet anotehr reason Im glad I didn't get a pre.
