    Is anybody else noticing that Amazon Instant video destroys the macbook battery and heats the thing up? On HD it eats up over 50% cpu while on non-HD it eats around 30%. The thing is either way the machine gets realitively hot and battery life is like 4 hours. Anyone else getting this issue? I am on the latest OSX.

    As a comparison flash with the crackle website uses only 15% cpu and does not heat up the computer.

    I told them that last year. Told them to get into the future not the past. I see they didn't listen.

    I've been avoiding installing any browser plugins on my MB. Flash has been pretty easy to get around, but I haven't tried Amazon video on it -- I didn't realize they used Silverlight.
