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 don't own an iPad. You paid for it, but read the EULA, you don't own anything other than the molecules. By turning it on it is still in Apples property and will stay there forever.

How could you suspect to copy any content on the iPad? Even without the nod from Apple? What a strange idea.

Don't fuzz with Apple. Use the iPad as Apple dictates it.

By the way, the iPad is a streaming device. I do expect that videolan only offers to play the content that is streamed from another vlc server. Nothing more.
