    Phoronix: iPhone/iPod Linux Library Hits Version 1.0

    While Apple provides support for the iPod and iPhones on Mac OS X (of course) and even Windows, complete with iTunes support, they provide no such love for those wishing to use their gadgets on Linux. This has led the Linux community to reverse-engineering Apple's USB protocol for the iPod/iPhone devices, developing different hacks, and in some cases even needing to "jail break" the product in order to use it fully under Linux. There's a few different projects around that seek to implement iPhone/iPod support on Linux, but one of them that takes an entirely free software approach and does not depend upon any DRM or proprietary libraries is libimobiledevice. This week the libimobiledeviceproject is celebrating their version 1.0 release after being in development for nearly three years...

    I've always found that the easiest way to get apple junk working under linux (or just working *AT ALL*) is to first crush it into a fine powder, then work to make some money to buy the non-apple equivalent, which is almost universally superior to the apple junk that you started with.

              Apple fucks developers with the NDA. Apple fucks HTML with H.264. Apple fucks customers with completely locked up stuff. Apple fucks minorities with same locked up stuff. In Sovjet Russia, you fuck Apple.

                Guess you gotta say "Google fucks HTML with H.264" as well there.

                  And Nokia. It's really sad. I guess they forgot the rules of the W3C.
