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?

Yeah but the importan bits that I want to get to, the email is not accessible this way. I have to use RIM's crappy sync tools or the much better BES In-order for this to work properly. My point is that everything has it's limitations. My real point in my comment is that Thom seems to basically do these articles to get page hits because otherwise they are pretty damn stupid when you read them.With little actual substance and lots of opinion. If I want to see that shit I'd go to slashdot. Basically these "articles" are exactly what people accuse Apple of being, all hype an no substance. If he has such issues with Apple how about be stop bitchig and buy something else and spare us. The only thing I can think of is that Apple must of bitch slapped Thom at some point to inspire such ire.

As for the iOS comment. I personally hate ITunes. It's slow, bloated and designed horribly. That we all agree on. But it does manage content fairly well and when you have a 400gb library like I do dragging and dropping doesn't cut it.

The text issues is an issue fromthe developer of the VLC app. Even the article says as much. There Are many apps on the app store and this doesn't seem to e a rampant issue byte iPhone documentation is very specific on how to handle text placement to avoid just these issues.
