Another reason the iPod (and its creator!) sucks

While I like some of Apple’s engineering’s efforts (webkit.org mostly), some of their other creations suck.
The new Apple iPod Touch was released the other day. Apple apparently changed the database format of the on device media library to require some secret cryptography so that it only works with Apple iTunes, preventing other players (such as Banshee) from properly working with the iPod. I don’t personally own an iPod for many reasons, and this is just another reason to boycott the Apple iPod.
