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?

From the moment I had my first MP3 player that simply displayed as a flashdrive, required sync software has been a near deal breaker. One can provide a product which presents as a flashdrive and provides a media manager for syncing content. They could provide the device for both basic and advanced users.

This is actually one of my complaints about the Ithingy overall; WTF do I need Itunes to activate my phone for? Devices that are that user limiting can get stuffed. I'll stick with what I got that blows 32 GeeBees out of the water and gives me the easy choice of SSH or plugging it in like a flashdrive.
