There's that iTunes Thing

April 3, 2010 20:10:21.993


Okay so the iPad has a problem that lots of software has, when you finish the basic setup -- now what? There are no movies, newspapers or books on the device, and no clue as to how to get them on there. Those are the first things I want to do, see how it plays stuff. Maybe I'm wrong about that. I should disconnect and see what I get.

Dave Winer must be the only person on the planet who doesn't know that you use iTunes to get stuff onto the iPad - either directly from the iTunes app on the device, or via synching from your computer.

David is confused because Apple doesn't ship devices full of CrapWare. Perhaps if this was from microsoft you'd have 10GB of crap you now are attempting to delete.

Actually ITunes isn't all that intuitive and Dave Winer certainly makes some good points about this. I don't think I'd want an IPad given the various constraints that I'm reading about.

While iTunes has problems (like all software), it's not that hard to figure out. It works pretty much like every other Apple app around.
