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?

"Many of the complaints about Apple, Apple lock in, DRM, etc. is in my opinion wrongly blamed upon Apple where the real villains are the content creators who have demanded what most would consider unreasonable restrictions on their content. "

Apple works with the content providers and Apple tells them what plans they have. then Apple "encourages" them to go on baord with it, hence why apple has all these things already set up for product launches. apple tells them their plans, the companies that work with apple want to be along for the ride ($$$), and that's how you end up where were at.

content providers want ot make money so they follow Steve's "vision" and Apple's controlling nature (which is a good thing for a company what wants to make $$$ first and foremost).

it is what it is....
