The larger screen of the iPAD really help watching video. Streaming video has become easier for the average person. The only problem I have found with all of the video apps is that video cannot be projected. When a video is purchased from iTunes, you are purchasing a single viewing license. With Netflix and ABC starting the video craze on the iPAD, it has spawned other players to get on board.
