Much like Google, Netflix is taking over the world. In fact, we'll goahead and surmise that Google will buy Netflix within the next year.Now that our wild (and not serious) prediction is out there, thereactually is some news on the Netflix front. First off, the company's"Watch Instantly" streaming service will be debuting on the iPad, afeat that many thought impossible just a few months ago.

When Apple introduced the iPad, the inability to stream Hulu andNetflix was a big downer, but on the very day that the iPad launched,Netflix has announced that an iPad is available for users to streamtheir queue right to their new tablet. This is a huge win for Apple,and an even bigger win for Netflix customers who were on the fenceabout an iPad purchase. Being able to watch videos from your queueright on the iPad, on your bed or sofa, is what this device was madefor. Obviously there are concerns about streaming over 3G (the 3G modelisn't out yet; it's Wi-Fi or bust for now), but we suspect those whoare holding out for the 3G model will find out the answers later thismonth.



In other news, existing iPod touch and iPhone users aren't being leftout. Netflix has also announced that an app for iPhone and iPod touchusers is in the works, though no exact release date has been mentioned.We suspect there are more hoops to jump through for that one,particularly since the iPhone has a 3G connection already. We sure hopethat the iPhone version of the app will stream over 3G, but based onthe past, we aren't going to get our hopes up too high. So much for going outside this summer, right?

I am sure in a month or so, they will have a system set up where you can get this from any connection at home or on the go.

This is just another way to prostitute the marketing of the IPad. Kinda silly with the IPad's connectivity issues, unless you are buying the Bells and whistles one.

Can you imagine if Microsoft did this type of thing to their customers. OH, let barely produce any product so there is a high demand. That way we will have people waiting in line so it makes it to all the news channels.(sarcasm) then other companies will have to pay us to announce their apps on the debutt.
