Apple continues to reveal its Microsoft emulation: do it our way or else (but with a soupçon of Mac mystique). But restraint of trade remains restraint of trade, however you might 'jobs' it up.
"So, it's finally happened. Unhappy with other media players being better than iTunes, Apple have [sic] apparently decided to stop them from working with the new range of iPods."
This is bad news for Winamp, Songbird, ephpod and/or Linux users in general. This was already basically made a moot point by the iPhone since it uses iTunes to sync your contacts and calendar - but now the entire new line of iPods is literally and physically locked to iTunes too.
