Ubuntu Plays With the iPhone

Threads began popping out of the Ubuntu Forums yesterday about iPhone users able to use their phones with Rhythmbox and Ubuntu. iPhone owners charge their devices and Ubuntu automatically recognize the contents as photos or music/audio files.

Is this something that came with the kernel upgrade? So shall Linux? So will Ubuntu…but I’m pretty sure Apple won’t.

If this becomes a permanent feature then the devs should be congratulated for solving a major hurdle. Newbies always ask if they can sync their ipods and iphones with Ubuntu. Answering "yes" to that seems strange for now.
