The iPad Netflix app used to be nothing more than a browser version of the service, but now the ninjas at Netflix have updated its look and disabled the DVD queue. No downloading required. [Hacking Netflix via Engadget]
Less ugly...less usable. I was a big user of Netflix on the iPad, watching sci-fi and horror flicks with wild abandon. This latest so-called update removes at least 15/16 of my search ability to cone down on the most twisted sci-fi or nutty horror flicks that I could find. Huh, maybe that's their new business model, trying to trip me up. The age-old aesthetics subverting usability. Got it.
