OS 3.0: Re-Downloading Costs

pay twice

With the new iPhone 3.0 software Apple aims to save a bit of  bandwidth of Mobile Companies by charging users for Re- Downloading an App that they have paid for but may have deleted.It is to be noted that this Re Downloading Cost is applicable only in On the GO cases when you use your iPhone or iPod Touch to connect to the App Store.If you were to use your iTunes and your MAC for the same purpose you can easily redownload without paying a penny.

Though some people would end up paying twice for the App despite the warning message.However, the real motive behind this surprise hitch in otherwise sweet OS 3.0 is more aimed to reduce the Network Load than make the user suffer.What I cannot understand is why not restrict the usage to WiFi mode only than block it altogether?

iTunes 8.2 supports Palm Pre

Palm has flaunted the Palm Pre’s ability to sync with iTunes for long.However, with the release of iTunes 8.2 , doubts were casted on the continued support.For what has Apple to gain in this unholy alliance.

However, reports have confirmed that despite the new iTunes 8.2 update , the Palm Pre syncs with the iTunes flawlessly.

Palm’s new webOS operating system, which powers the Pre, has media sync as one of its key features. With it, users can connect their Pre to a PC or Mac, select ‘media sync’ on the phone and wait for iTunes to launch on their desktop, says Palm.

This effectively makes it as easy to integrate a Pre with iTunes as an iPhone or iPod.
