I agree that the iPad is better for the iTunes crowd... no point in talking about Google's plan to compete with iTunes until they actually DO something about it. I've never had a use for iTunes so it's not for me.
"Hello! We notice that you are trying to access Hulu from your Android. It's not available, but we are working hard to bring our Hulu Plus subscription service to this Android device! Stay tuned for updates."
If you want Android, and Honeycomb specifically, to compete with Apple, then the entire Android community needs to move beyond this idea that hacking or tricking the phone is an acceptable alternative to real functionality.
There are also situations where a non-internet solution is needed. Maybe download a movie or two to watch on a flight?
As for Blockbuster, I didn't even know they still existed.
