Watched it on my iPad.

What's not mentioned is how extremely well the iPhone and iPad handle embedded HTML5 video; smooth scrolling and zooming, plus hardware decoding. If Google had also decided to only support HTML5 video that would only accelerate what is already rather quick adoption of that standard, and everybody would win. Instead they're relying on Adobe to deliver Android's video, and the results are predicably bad. But it's a bullet point they can add to their new anti-Apple marketing strategy, and I guess that's more important than the actual quality of the software they ship.
