Previously an unbearable download, Joost has relaunched as a web-based app. Its competition will be Hulu, iTunes, and YouTube, in that order.


Now in unbearable cartoon form.

You forgot Sling.com. I got into the beta yesterday and it's pretty great. Its already replaced hulu for me (since they seem to have scraped or licensed all of hulu's content, and then added on top of that).

Yeah, Sling isn't a competitor yet, but it certainly could be in the near future...

It's like someone said "you know that Office paperclip? do something like that, but more annoying."

Joost also made me type random information into a "registration" form, AND download a new version of Flash. That's a lot of hoops to jump through when I can already watch the Daily Show on hulu with minimal hassle.
