Hello Im not sure if I'm missing somthing or if there were developments i was unaware of. But i was surprised to find when my Ipod Touch was connected to my PC and i was using my favorite Medi Player (media monkey) i was able to sync it through media monkey bypassing Itunes completely. I thought that Ipod touches were only able to sync through Itunes. But this is not the case. It good news though because I hate using ITunes.
