Ah, I see. I wasn't sure if it had to do with the supported external display or something like that.

It has to be the most frustrating, proprietary and inefficient way of managing files I have ever seen. On the Transformer (or even my kid's $200 Kobo Vox), connect via USB, drag and drop videos, music, ebooks, pictures etc and away you go.
With the IPad everything has to be managed through ITunes, videos have to be converted etc. The IPad may be a decent piece of hardware but the software interface is flat out crap.
I never hated iTunes like most people, but I also saw no value in having to use it either. Seems like the single positive advancement that Apple's made with iTunes and iOS is the ability to utilize their cloud service. Yes, you'd have to first upload your files from some device running iTunes first, but at least once it's there, it's there, and as long as you rely solely on iTunes (on your device) for obtaining media files, it's all dumped to their cloud. I still think they're behind the times though. But to me, with my ipod touch, the only advantage of iOS 5 was getting updates for the OS directly to the device rather than interfacing with iTunes.
But really, with so many more alternatives to iphones, ipods, and ipads, iTunes has become a detriment to Apple's products, and it seems like they're picking up on that.
