Yes, I tried that too: "I have a file, I want to put it on the ipad".
Those inevitably made him diverge to the purpose of the file (for
example, if it's a pdf then obviously I need a viewer, if its an exe
then obviously I'm stupid to want to put in something I can't use).

But the ogg question was very purposeful in that sense.  I even
phrased it carefully as the kind of questions they're supposed to
answer easily.

(I'll avoid further replies which will probably make me complain about
Apple and the kind of culture it is trying to foster with things like
the ipad.)
