    I sorta found a way that allows netflix streaming on the Touchpad. I was able to do it through RDP with the splashtop app for pc and touchpad. The app cost 4.99 with it's promotional offer but it will cost $20 in a few days. The sound comes out of the touchpad and video playback is very very smooth for RDP (at least for me.) Just thought I'd share the info. Check out the pics!!!

    Well, you seem happy to have discovered this and I'm sure there a more than a few people that hadn't known about this as well. So for that, good job sir or ma'am! This isn't exactly news though. This information is widely known around these forums and also the Splashtop app description in the catalog mentions Netflix streaming as one of it's features. But again, I'm sure you made someones day.

    Actually IE-9 and 10 are not bad at all. 64 bit no add version loads great on my Vaio z.
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    IMHO The only thing the Internet Explorer is good for, is to download a better browser.

    Yeah... funny enough, the new IE happens to run almost any benchmark faster than firefox or chrome on my home pc...

    I still wind up using chrome or firefox since i already have them set up (adblock ftw), but i could easily see myself using IE in its current incarnation... When the dust settles, ive always used the fastest and most capable browser. No loyalty issues here. IE isn't too far from providing an experience i'd switch for.

    LMAO it does what I need it to do And with ie9 you can drag tabs to the start bar and make a shortcut for websites. If you look at the picture again I had a netflix shortcut next to the explorer icon. Btw I have firefox on the start bar too!

    Splashtop is not RDP just as a FYI. RDP is MS Remote Desktop Protocol. Splashtop is not.

    This stopped being true over the past few years. IE is pretty nice these days.

    I still use FF myself but IE isn't the joke it used to be with version 6

    I use chrome more often now since FF is such a memory hog (today's update seemed buggy too). But back on topic, Splashtop is awesome. Very glad i picked it up for only $5.
