Apple As I was casually browsing around today, I came across this blog post. It's about the recently released VLC media player for the iPad, which you can use to play just about any video under the sun on your iPad. The blog post is a complaint about a bit of help text that's not properly rendered inside the application - annoying, but no dealbreaker. Until I actually read the text - this is how you're supposed to get content on your iPad?

Contrary to popular belief around here, I actually really like Apple's products (read any review I've written and you'll see), and I tend to think that Apple has a slightly better grasp on how to make mundane tasks in computing easier to accomplish than most other software licensors. As an iPhone owner, I obviously know how much of a pain it is to get content on your iPhone, but with it being a phone, it never really bothered me all that much.

This is how Apple related conversations happen online, publishers write about apple in an apologetic/sympathetic or flat out ignore any shortcomings of any idevice and the mentioning of the shortcoming comes from the comments section. You are setting up the conversation backwards Thom and that is why you are appearing as "hating" on Apple and their products.

Not that many people complain Thom, there need to be some sort of a balance on how these conversations are set up. There need to be somebody balancing out the likes of "MG Siegler" on techcrunch. Just dont go overboard.
