The title of the post is a little misleading. It should be iPad + Netflix Streaming = Potentially Awesome. The movie companies have imposed such crazy restrictions on streaming to protect their DVD cash cow that all of the movies you want at the touch of a button just won't be there. So the big news (unless this is an April Fool's joke) is that Netflix is going to offer a streaming service for the iPad. There really couldn't be a more perfect match. Watching movies and TV shows on an iPhone is fine for short periods of time, but watching them on the larger and higher resolution screen is going to be a much more enjoyable experience.
The big question: Is Netflix the app that will get you to buy an iPad?
