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?

Because when someone points out that something that Apple has done is a very long way from being perfect he then picks out something he thinks is worse, or just as bad, and that gives him warm fuzzies.

In reality, Amarok is miles better than iTunes because it can actually organise your music the way that you want and in a way that's relevant - not Apple. The functionality it has is also miles ahead of iTunes so I don't know where that came out of the blue from either, but it probably means he knows it's true. Oh, and the vertical tabs are gone.

I recently moved from Deb 5 to Deb 6.

Old Amarok, I simply setup a generic mobile device entry pointing at a directory separate from my main library; files got renamed applicably and dropped in place for an easy rsync to my physical mobile device.

New Amarok, they seem to have "tried to help" with the new interface. I can't organize files from the "now playing" listing or alternatively, get a nice full window view of my library. I can't seem to setup a generic device pointed back at my Portable directory so I'm left with only the option to manage media through the filesystem.

If I'm missing some hidden list of options in Amarok, I'd be grateful to be told so. Otherwise, they seem to have copied Itunes ability to hinder the user.
