|Re: [PLUG] iDevices|
I hate DRM as much as the next person, but frankly iTunes does a decent job, and I don't have time to manage some other way to do it - Plus who knows if the next iOS update will break it.
There is more options if you jailbreak it, but since it's a work device you probably can't do that.

The world *is* actually going to end shortly, as evidenced by work getting me an iPad.I am not the least bit interested in iTunes. I don't want to dig up Steve Jobs and ask permission each time I want to put a media file on my device. No syncing needed - just xfer files and play/view/display them.Plugging into Win7 allows me access to DCIM but I can't actually put anything there. Plugging into Xubuntu 12.04 finds a USB device but that's it. Xubuntu 12.10 fully identifies the iPad and that's it. I have Googled, installed libimobile, fuse, gtkpod and whatever else, to no avail.Apparently one cannot simply use a File Manager to manage files. Every manager I found wants you to use ITS file system.I know these things are pretty popular. How does PLUG use them? Thanks.
