Enjoy syncing your Pre with iTunes? Not so fast …

itunes-logoNo longer will Palm’s Pre smart phone be able to masquerade as an iPhone like a Decepticon.

Apple on Wednesday pushed out an update to iTunes that cuts off Pre users’ ability to load music onto their devices with the free popular software.

A spokesman for Apple told The Associated Press that the update “disables devices falsely pretending to be iPods, including the Palm Pre.”

A Palm spokeswoman called the move a direct blow to users, “who will be deprived of a seamless synchronization experience.” She suggested Pre users stick with the older version of iTunes or get comfortable with USB cables or third-party applications.

In other news from the Hardware Wars, Microsoft says it will open retail stores “right next door to Apple” this fall. COO Kevin Turner tells The Associated Press the company is “in the game for the long-term.” This follows Google’s recent announcement that it will challenge Microsoft’s dominance in the world of computer operating systems with its Chrome OS for netbook PCs.
