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?

My current work device is a Blackberry Storm, which hardly gets used because it sucks donkeys balls. I know exactly what I'm talking about when I speak about the blackberry.


Agree completely about Storm. Questionable second sentence, see further down


Second you missed my point entirely, you still have to use Blackberry's software to get it to sync emails, am I right? You still need Desktop Manager, right? How is that different than iTunes? Its still a piece of software forced upon users to be able to sync their information with out much alternatives, which was the point I was making. Be it BES, or Desktop manager you are not syncing emails without either.


It would seem to me that you are missing the point of Thom's rant, which if I understood correctly (please Thom correct me if I am wrong) is more like :
When syncing a device with media files if the process is not just A click then at least provide a way to just transfer a file, like a file: as in use the device in a mass storage device mode. RIM provides you with 2 ways to sync your emails, (totally not related to the article but nerveless illustrates differences) and also provides 3 ways to manipulate your files and does none of these pretends to be : media player, shopping gateway, content sniffing, installer for additional software etc .

If you still can't see the difference then:

Questionable second sentence

becomes:
I seriously doubt it
