The app does...

Also, Android users can't view it, either. They must use the app, despite having Flash.

Seriously? Nothing was taken out of context at all.. I even recreated the conversation at one point...

I can watch the overwhelming majority in the YouTube app or Safari. Far in excess of 99%. Perfect? No. Acceptable enough to say that YouTube works well on iOS? Absolutely. And for that small percentage that won't? There's an app for those, too.
You can't watch anywhere CLOSE to 99%... you certainly can't watch any videos with ads and the percentage of those is growing daily.

Quote:
Most of the top sites offer mobile or HTML5 versions now. That's what is pretty clear. Even sites outside of the top 100 are on the bandwagon. iOS is a perfectly viable platform.
If by MOST you mean "a few"... then yeah. But as I pointed out, Hulu, Fox NBC etc etc etc are NOT on that list... that seems pretty huge to me.

Yet, you still managed to mischaracterize it. The discussion spanned several pages, and culminated in that exchange. Yet, it was never about limiting it to certain sites. The point of the exchange was that you won't ALWAYS have to download an app to watch videos on the web, and that's true. It wasn't that you'll NEVER have to.

Sure I can. Maybe I need to use iSwifter. Maybe I can view it through Skyfire. But I can watch them if I really need to.

NBC is, as you've just discovered. Hulu is a business decision more than an anti-HTLM5. They don't want ANY mobile browser viewing it for free, so they have prevented that from occurring. But, they do have an app, and that counts as a decent alternative.

I was seriously considering an Asus Transformer Prime (the specs are staggeringly good) but now that I have had a Touchpad for awhile I have come to think Amazon may be right with the 7" form factor. 9-10 inches is just a bit too big and 4" is just a bit too small. 7" seems just big enough.

OK I just reread this post and if you take the last two sentences out of context I sound really really gay.

Another problem I have with the Touchpad is that while it is 10X more useful than an iPad () .. and even after loading mine with Ubuntu .. it is still basically a toy. And if I'm buying another big toy... $500+ seems a bit too much.

Shit, I love my touchpad. I even like WebOS for the most part. I don't even have any complaints about the speed of the device. It doesn't seem underpowered to me at all. Overclocking to 1.5 does wonders.

I still contend that these tablets are severely overpriced for what they are and hate apple for setting that damn price point for everyone to follow.

You're better off saving up for an iPad you want than buying a series of shitty non-competitors that you'll hate.

It has been a perfect buy for me. I can do pretty much everything I want except for photo editing. Especially with all the enhancements google has made to the UI of all their web products.

Do not want a 10 inch. Do not want an ipad. I hate that in order to view streaming content half the time i need to use a ****ing app.

Plus, if i was going to spend 500 bucks, id' just get a laptop. 7 in screens are perfect for me. Just want something i can mess with when i am in bed at night to surf/read before its sleep time.

I was pretty much in the same boat and got an iPad 2. It has been incredible. I literally miss it when I don't have it.

Yea, I am the opposite where it is like why pay more money for a laptop when I can have the much better form factor of the iPad. More comfortable to hold and use plus carry around than a laptop.

I have a Kindle Fire. Its awesome, though glitchy, and no way comparable to the iPad. Unless you think a Ferrari 599 and a Hyundai Accent are comparable.

I do prefer the size of the Fire, especially since I primarily read on it. But that's it.

Especially when a cheap laptop is going to come with cheap software that will land you up in the malware thread all the time.
