iTunes 8.2.1: The fight continues

Apple has released iTunes 8.2.1 to the masses. The biggest ‘fix’ in this update is the breaking of the Palm Pre syncing. In case you did not hear, when the Palm Pre Launched on June 6th, it could sync natively with your iTunes Music collection.

Along with the Palm Pre’s no longer syncing, there are some bug fixes that were included with the Update.

The download is a whopping 79.3 Megabytes (WTF is up with this? I mean seriously, why should I download an 80 megabyte ‘patch’. That’s just absolutely ridiculous, but that is a whole other rant that I have yet to explore). You can download the massive update from

As to what the bug fixes are, I’m not sure. They are not listed on any of the standard Apple pages. If it does magically appear I will update this post, however I think this update is strictly for, as Apple states “iTunes 8.2.1 provides a number of important bug fixes and addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices.’

This means that those who might have been using another device, other than the Palm Pre, may not be able to natively sync their devices with iTunes. So, for you Zune owners there goes your chance of syncing your device with iTunes. Oh wait… nevermind… Zune doesn’t work with Macs…
