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?

The could easily provide a device that gives you drag and drop with the option to use a media manager application. The current problem is providing devices that only allow a media manager in absence of the drag/drop option.

With Amorak, I can mount the device and have the media manager dump content to the device directly. I can dump to a Portable directory and rsync/ssh it to the device (my current method since it allows update through any network connection). I can simply open the content library and drag or ssh files without touching the media manager. That's world better than being required to connect a wire and run Itunes or outright void the device warranty.

Consumers could have it both ways and choose what works best for there needs if the device manufacturers would stop playing BS walled garden games.
