Multimedia, AV VLC 2.0 has been released. "With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 is a major upgrade for VLC. Twoflower has a new rendering pipeline for video, with higher quality subtitles, and new video filters to enhance your videos. It supports many new devices and BluRay Discs (experimental). Completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces and improvements in the other interfaces make VLC easier than ever to use. Twoflower fixes several hundreds of bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 160 volunteers."

Why do you have a wireless mouse but no wireless keyboard?
Seriously, labeling it completely useless due to this is a bit arrogant.

because I don't need such, and also if I had such, it would be highly inconvenient to use it, as opposed to mouse (handy during presentations, easier to manipulate when you don't have cord - those do not apply to wireless keyboard...)

Obviously you do, so you can press the space bar when pausing in VLC...

I have a few wireless mice but no wireless keyboards.

1) I often use a wireless mouse with my laptop but am happy with the built-in keyboard.

2) I find the mouse cord catches on things easily (which is annoying) since it is so mobile. My desktop/server keyboards are relatively stationary and do not have the same issue.

3) Like the original poster, I find there are a few apps the you can interact nicely with using only the 'click' functionality of my nice, small, portable mouse. Carting a keyboard around the room is less fun.

That said "totally useless" is typical Internet high-drama hyperbole.
