I don't think devices and their function are in any jeopardy, you'll just be synchronising them with a different app. I can, however, understand the reticence with regard to a potential change in codec i.e. will they keep the M4A/AAC formats, and will the new 'music' app happily catalogue and play MP3/WAV/etc....my guess is the new app will do everything iTunes does as far as audio goes, the last thing they want to be doing is rolling out firmware updates to the billion-strong angry mob.

And actually, for us Windows users, there's no reason to stop using iTunes for library cataloguing and syncing, it just won't connect to the online marketplace or get any updates and I can live with that. I've just kind of put my own mind at ease, nice.

Cheers and beers
