Can't find Zumocast. ZumoDrive perhaps?
Here you go!
ZumoCast - Stream your media to iPhone, iPad, and any browser. It's your personal cloud.
Strange ... I tried to get a link for the Itunes App and it tells me it is not available in the US. I wonder why that is?
***Edit: it appears that the app has been pulled while they are updating. That's too bad because it is fantastic. Hopefully it will be back soon.
Tough contest between the Netflix app, and Civilization: Revolution (Sid Meier strategy game).
Obviously, I use my iPad primarily for entertainment...
I've put a ton of hours into Civ Rev as well. I see that Ascendancy is out now for the iPad as well which is another good strategy game. It is going to be hard to resist that purchase.
Ah, that's why I can't find it. ZumoDrive seems to be from the same company, with cloud hosting instead of home computer hosting.
how much is a netflix account and month, and is there any buffering or anything like that?
I believe the basic account is $8.99 a month. That gives you one DVD rental at a time (only limited by how fast you watch them) and unlimited streaming. It is a killer deal IMO.
There isn't much buffering with the Netflix streams, mainly because the iPad has a pitifully small amount of RAM, but with a good connection you get a pretty high quality stream most of the time. They have a trial period if you want to give it a shot and see how well it works. One warning though. If it works well for you chances are you will never get rid of it!
Netflix price went up by $1 last month I believe. It's $9.99 now w/ DVD, and still $2 extra if you want blu-rays. They also introduced a streaming-only subscription, which I think was $7.99 if I recall correctly.
I sure would like to use NetFlix, but I don't like them having open-ended access to my account. So I buy my movies from Apple instead...
They don't need bank account access - I use my Amex for this sort of thing, knowing that if I have any trouble they'll be all over the vendor like a cranky pitbull.
