Have you ever thought that perhaps Apple chooses not to be a bottom feeder, because it sounds like you're suggesting that Apple has no choice in the matter?

Yep, Apple is really hurting.

Choosing between a Dell, HP, Toshiba, Acer are the options the far majority of people choose. Windows is not a choice.

Can you post some numbers showing that Apple is loosing the laptop desktop markets. Apple has never really played in the enterprise market to loose it.

Is there a reason for Hulu to support iPad's Safari browser directly? Why can't they develop their own application with authentication and a webview embedded into it? That should be secure enough. Also, H.264 is the most widely used now. That is not high performance for Hulu?

The post is all about lame excuses. Hulu need to hire more competent people.

And yet again, someone posts without reading any of the thread. We've answered your question several times already. Hulu is perfectly competent. They are, however, bound to whatever the content providers want them to use, and right now that's Flash, for better or worse. Even the Hulu desktop applications use Flash. Again, it's not about security. It's about you watching the shows they way that they want to provide them to you to protect older revenue streams. No more, no less.

Four pages of mostly off topic arguments aren't worth reading. Thanks for the summary.

The studios are not forcing Hulu to provide content in Flash specifically. ABC, NBC, CBS all provide H.264 streams that are viewable on either the iPhone or iPad. The use of Flash is about security and the ability to show commercials. Which HTML5 video is not set up to provide in the same way. The only thing that is holding up a native Hulu app is negotiations over a direct payment revenue model.

So, you are then saying that the OS is not very high criteria when selecting a computer, basically people don't care what OS they are running.

From that fact that one OS is used on 90% of the computers around the world. In what scenario do the majority of people walk into any computer retailer and make the OS a major part of their purchase? What selections are they choosing from?
