When I first heard of this device I thought it would be a great alternative to my MacBook to watching movies while in bed, on an airplane, or wherever else I could use it. But after finding out it has a 4:3 screen i'm pretty bummed. I remember a few years ago before I bought an HDTV I hated watching widescreen movies on my old TV (which was also 4:3), and it'll probably be the same with the iPad. I guess i'm going to keep using my MacBook as a portable movie device....unless iPad 2.0 has a wider aspect ratio. And since it won't run Flash I sure hope Hulu has an app in development.
