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?

Averages users don't drag and drop anything.

Generalisation = fail. I see people drag and drop all the time - and I have zero geek friends (geeks freak me out).

Most of their media comes from ripping CDs in iTunes

Barely any one of my friends buys CDs. I'm the lone ranger when it comes to that in my social circle.

or buying from the Apple iTunes store.

Haha, good one. In the US maybe - here, not so much. I don't know ANYONE who buys stuff in the iTMS, mostly because downloading is a) legal and b) cheaper and c) actually has worthwhile stuff (no films or TV series in Europe's iTMS, for example).

Also, and maybe more importantly, iTMS requires a credit card. People in The Netherlands don't pay with credit cards - we have regular bank cards with checking accounts for that. Credit cards are nearly exclusively used while travelling.
