Tech Bleg

Please let it be true:

Hulu is rumored to be working on an iPad-friendly version of its site which could be ready by the iPad's March launch date.

According to TechCrunch, popular video site Hulu is already at work developing a way to deliver its content to the iPad platform outside of its normal Flash-based site.

I've only used Hulu once or twice, and I'm not exactly sold on the iPad as a TV. So what's my dog in this fight? I hate Flash. Hate it. Hate hate hate it. When the iPad was announced a couple weeks ago, I wrote:

There’s no Flash in the web browser? And people are complaining? That’s like getting upset when you’re told that your new car won’t come equipped with a toothless vagrant who sits in the backseat, screaming at you.

And I was probably being too kind. Whatever Flash can do, HTML5 and H.264 can do better. Faster. And without being so god-awful buggy.

Anyway, if the iPad drives a stake into Flash's heart, it'll be the Product That Save the Web.
