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?

... you just can´t complain when he screws you up ...

Everyone keeps complaining and whining and all of that: in vain.

Apple has made, and keeps making, every possible effort to let you know that they are a "one way ticket" ... yet every Apple "younameit" owner keeps complaining and posting and raving about Apple´s attitude towards it´s customers.

Basically: don´t buy them, and if you persist, well, you _knew_ about them. You just can´t say you didn´t see it coming.

I agree, for the consumers making the choice.. don't like it.. don't buy it. But, what of us geeks who have to support the crap after someone else buys it due to short term thinking and pretty blinky lights? Not all of us chose the product that we have to take care of afterward.

If you can see the Apple logo in the box then don´t even open the thing and take it back to the store for a refund; and don´t forget to tell "blinky eyes" why you are going to, or did do that ... then you can rest assured that not only you but also "blinky eyes" will never buy from them again.
