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?

In this case it's the "content owners" stupid.


That excuse was believable back when this iTunes business all started. Today, the situation is different. Apple calls the shots now. The ONLY reason this issue hasn't been addressed yet is because Apple wants you to do. Everything. Through. iTunes. No matter how much of a Frankenapp it has become.

Big Content does not dictate how Apple's devices interact with the outside world. Apple does.
