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?

Files and directories is not the appropriate metaphor for illiterate computer users. There needs to be another metaphor.

Well apples approach was to hide them and make things in this area 10 times more complicated. Guess what 90% of computer users are perfectly fine with folders and files the 10% impaired cannot be helped not even by removing folders and files but trying that causes problems for the 90% who actually can think and adapt.
