Comment Saturation? (Score 3, Insightful) 453

Netflix worked just fine through the browser on the TouchPad from what I've heard... Until the fire sale, when Netflix blocked it.

Hulu did this, not netflix. Netflix is silverlight based rather than flash which was never supported on the touchpad. Hulu worked natively in the webos browser and they pulled support for it. I guess their ads aren't enough and they won't let you use it unless they can monetize an app.

As I read it, the issue wasn't with him taking them on his plane so much as through the general airport population shared by both public and private passengers. He's not allowed an exemption to carry weapons through the terminal just because he owns a jet.
