Use iTunes With Other Devices

If you have a portable media player that isn’t an iPod, you know how frustrating it can be if you own a Mac. Apple has done a great job creating an iTunes, iTunes Music Store ecosystem. This is great if you have an iPod or iPhone but it is really frustrating for the millions of other people who own Blackberrys, PSP, Android and other devices.

Now, new software is availalble from a company called doubleTwist which will let you use your devices on your Mac, in iTunes.

A quick video demonstration of it’s capabilities are below.

The software was developed by Jon Lech Johansen (aka DVD Jon). He is the same guy who cracked the DVD copy protection scheme. If anyone can figure out the interoperability problem, it’s him.

  1. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.If interested in link exchange please contact me.

  2. Apple does a good job at creating product lines that are compatible with one another – however I have never heard of anybody owning a Mac and a non Apple Mp3 player such as Creative.

    I have an iPod touch and love it, but don’t use a Mac. What Apple are trying to do is if you own an iPod then you should get a Mac. . The iPod ‘just works’ and so does the Mac.
