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.
Weird, I had assumed Hulu was on Android.. since I find Hulu to be damn near useless.. I hadn't checked.

I am not talking about tricking or hacking the device... I am talking about the fact that 90% of the video I watch comes from Flash sites like MegaVideo... but I don't see that as a viable solution for the "average" user and will admit they need sites like Hulu to offer proper Android support.

The easiest overall solution is to get a cloud media service up and running. .. but I'm not holding out hope for that anytime soon.
