doubleTwist - Play, Sync & Send photos, videos and music for Blackberry, iPod, Android, iPhone, PSP, LG. Free download for Mac, PC. (Thanks, Jon!)
We just went live with the public Windows beta of doubleTwist. The Mac version went out a little more than a month ago and generated headlines like "doubleTwist may be the coolest universal media manager ever"
We feel that just like you don't have to use a different browser for every web site you visit (Firefox to read the NY Times, IE to stream Hulu, Chrome to browse YouTube, etc) you shouldn't have to use iTunes for Apple products, Nokia software for Nokia phones, Sony software for Sony products, etc. The typical household today has many such devices and we are building a simple and powerful software that connects them.
The new doubleTwist supports most major devices, from the BlackBerry and Android phones to the iPod/iPhone and Sony PSP.
Update: Jon sez, "One small correction: this version of doubleTwist does not have DRM support (it's finally gone from music anyway!) Our main aim is to provide a unified device management experience, including support for proprietary devices such as the iPod and the iPhone."

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
