So you really do believe 64MB if flash is all they could technically fit? And you'll use that as evidence that the device is inferior? Would you also say a 2.0l Mazda is inferior to a V8 corvette because it doesn't have nearly the same 0-60 time? Or would you instead concede that the designers understood the performance difference but used that specific engine for a specific reason.

Wonder how this will be enforced when a page might consider a first and last name only, and there are many people with the same combination. Now Google will have to be the arbiter of whether a request is legitimate, and not being made by someone unconnected, but simply having the same name.

Wow, finally a logical and intelligent comment in a sea of "horse buggy" detractors.

I think it was the same issue with black limousines in NYC being forbidden from picking people up curb-side. Getting a yellow cab medallion is a long process and costs a fortune. Those things are sought after. Getting a black limo on the road is much cheaper and less regulated. Why would you spend $10k for a medallion when anyone with a Crown Victoria painted black can pick people from under your nose, without any of the fees?

I think the Windows tablets and phones will get a good share of users, so it makes sense to release this. I have an iPad Retina and would take a Win tablet over it no hesitation, mainly for the ability to split the screen, an SD slot with no dongles, and a USB port. So much more extensible than the iPad.

Do RT users matter? Everything is going to mobile and tablets, so yea, it does matter if you're in the business/hobby of making apps for people to use.

I have an iPad, would swap it for a Windows tablet without a second thought. But I would like the assurance that I could play any format I wanted to, which I'd get from VLC. Historically, appliances and tablets (PS, Xbox, iPad, iPod) will either limit your format options, or not stay up to date on new ones. So having VLC there is great, I think.
