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?

Few n00bs know what a "file explorer" is, but anyone who's ever used XP for more than 10 seconds knows how to "double click 'my computer'".

Having worked with some people so computer illiterate that they weren't even aware CD-ROMs were read only nor that Microsoft Word was a different product to Microsoft Windows - I've had to learn to explain things in a way that they understand. And usually that amounts to:
me: close everything down
client: done that
me: now double click the 'My Computer'

Works every time (thankfully).

Unless they're using Vista or 7. Microsoft no longer like you thinking of your computer as yours, it seems ;)

Yeah, I did specify XP for that reason.

IIRC "My Computer" (or something to that effect) now appears in the start menu. But I don't have Vista/7 installed to check
