Of all the negative buzz surrounding the iPad's release, some of the most vituperative came from Flash enthusiasts (with Adobe, natch, leading the charge) pissed that Uncle Steve's new toy — like all Macinstuff — was shut out from huge swaths of games, viral videos, and other Web content.
Surprisingly, Hulu — second only to the mighty YouTube in online video streaming — did not chime in with the chorus of naysayers. According to industry-insider whispers, Hulu is looking for ways to make their content iPad-friendly. (For the record, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar recently pussyfooted around the issue, although he is admittedly a big fan of mobile media viewing.)
So it wouldn't be an overnight fix to create an "iHulu" — but it's doable. The more practical question is: unless the iPad is poised to become a major player in the portable-device market, is it worth Hulu's time and effort to become iPad friendly?
Sounds like a job for those pesky brain-slurping aliens who work there…
