OK, admittedly, I'm pretty irriatated right now, prolly not the best time to post But I'm pretty frustrated. I like everything about the iBook, but I just hate the fact that it's pretty much USELESS if you want to watch any non-quicktime audio or video files. What's up with the "mac is a multimedia computer" hype? That's just totally assinine and completely untrue. There's zero doubt that folks on XP have access to way much more media content than apple folks... now maybe that's MS's fault, but whatever, as a consumer I'm PO'd. And that VLC thingie, what a POS! I've downlaoded the latest, and it has to yet open a single file! If I could I'd kick it down the stairs and down the street! Today I went on Amazon, and that was the breaking point wrt. this issue. I can't even listen to the audio samples of CD's... niether the windows one, nor the realplayer one... so I select to open the files with VLC and OF COURSE, the POS fails with a lame message... WTF?? I mean, really, on my PC I wouldn't ever use realplayer, I used a free player that played real files, it wasn't even from realplayer... why doesn't something similar exist for macs?? That's just so crippling! OK, I vented. Back to the cave, shaking my fist.
