    Nope, and highly improbable that it will ever happen.

    Its not going to happen in the near future. It's probably going to be the biggest feature of itunes if it does happen one day.

    i dont see any technological reason why this cant be done, as i say the technology is there, wifi has the bandwidth, there are already apps that can sync the iPhone outside of Itunes, just making this available over wireless would be the next logical step.
    obviously apple dont hand out sweets to kids too often in fear of making them sick (ok crap analogy)

    I was doing it via Bluetooth with my Treo, so it can be done. Apple just needs a way to charge you for it through iTunes first.

    It can be done, but not by us ... by Apple.

    We'd have to make some sort of Wi-Fi/USB spoofer ... where iTunes thinks that the iPhone is connected via USB when it is actually just connected over wireless SFTP.

    Bingo[\B]. While it seems ridiculous off hand, Apple doesn't give much for free... There won't be a "pay per sync" feature for wireless syncing, I'm sure of that, but I would NOT be surprised at all if it becomes a part if some paid upgrade to iTunes.
