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?

Believe me as an iPad owner I can clearly state this idea does not work out. First you only are allowed to do this on a machine which has registered your pad in iTunes. Which is up to five machines max. Secondly the first an innocent user stumbles onto is a hours long search to find the hidden area where to drop the files. Third especially apple apps like iBooks do not allow a fully conform file exchange, try dropping or sending an pub file directly to iBooks. The idea was brain dead from the beginning especially since users haven't had any problem with folders for the last 20 years, and the replacement makes things worse.
