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're not going to get very far with a computer not knowing what a file is.

To have to have an iTunes subscription and only be able to get content through vetted channels is piss poor and you know it.

Unfortunately there are whole tribes of computing impaired specimens that get by on just clicking the "floppy" icon, and then depending on the MRUL (without even knowing what that is) to reopen their stuff.

They don't save a file, they "make Windows remember" what they just did. They even "know that Windows can remember 10 things".

**Shudder**

I can't really see how Apple is helping this tiny minority of completely computer-illiterate morons by making it impossible for regular users to copy files to their tablet computers.
