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?

I find it so hard not to get angry with people. Regularly I try to give people directions.
"Okay,just open up Explorer" I say
"What's that?", replies my uneducated subject
"It's your file manager" I return with. So he doesn't know the name of his file manager, big deal. Or so I delude myself.
"I don't think I have a... 'file manager'" at this point I twitch but keep my cool. I calmly explain that the file manager is where they can see their files, copy them, and otherwise use them. I see a smile and a nod as the idea seems to dawn on him. I expect him to click on that shiney "Computer" button. He opens iTunes... At this point, on the inside I am in a muderous rage at the idiocy of the so called (and sadly, likely true) "average" computer user. I take over control of the computer, the user's objections holding about as much meaning and coherency to me as the grunting of a large ape. The job is done, and I take a week off from "people" so I don't kill the next one to ask me a stupid question.
