So VLC is coming to the iPad. We'll see how Apple deals with that submission... Given the fact VLC can read far more video formats that the builtin video reader, and given the fact a video reader is already present in the iPad, it will very interesting to see if Apple plays the evil empire blocking that app or if the open source VLC makes it to the App Store.

Apple's too strong constraints on the App Store are attacked on all fronts. VLC on the iPad made me say a loud "wow". But if Apple blocks it because it's a doublon with the builtin reader, or because software video decoding is "a burden" on the processor or battery, it will be a VERY bad signal. Very interesting to follow, indeed.
