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?

No, IME, novice/mainstream users don't drag and drop much of anything. They are used to clicking and choosing things in dialogue boxes and windows but most don't try dragging - particularly on Windows.

You'd be amazed at the number of people that don't even realize you can drag a file into a mail window to attach it to an outgoing message.

As a sysadmin who overseas over 500 "users" and 35+ thech types, I'm not that surprised. ;)
