I thought it was pretty stupid to fight YouTube. Indeed, I do not support stealing and have the highest respect for intellectual property but when consumers like something that much, fighting them is a waste of time. In that context there are two great developments. First, Google now allows embedding YouTube video in a way that publishers make money. Now NBC is doing something similar and better. I took a look at the new offering with the rather ridiculous name Hulu.

I guess the only ridiculous thing is the name. Apart from that I love the large screen size and excellent quality of the video. And in all fairness to them, of course, there are ads that you cannot fast forward, but to me that is a small price to pay.
