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?

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.

What you are describing is what we in the US call a debit card. However, at least in the US, we can use debit cards exactly as if they were credit cards. I don't have a credit card, but I do use my debit card for every service that requires one, like Amazon purchases, Steam purchases, Netflix subscription...etc, and the money is subtracted directly from my checking account. I don't think these places are even aware that I'm paying with a debit card instead of a credit card.

I always assumed that debit cards or bank cards in other countries work the same way.
