Given how well Apple’s iPad has been selling – not to mention its 91% satisfaction rate – it looks like Americans just can’t get enough of Apple’s mystical new tablet. That can only mean one thing. It’s inevitable that the iPad gets more “love” from websites streaming adult entertainment videos for free. The infamous purveyors of NSFW adult content at YouPorn.com are seeing to it that anyone with an iPad can get down to business with streaming videos that play on the Flash-less tablet.
How is this possible? Has Steve Jobs finally allowed Adobe’s Flash technology to play with the iPhone OS as nicely as it does with the Android OS? No, but YouPorn is starting to encode its massive library of tantalizing erotic videos into HTML5 in order to support the in demand tablet. As of now, YouPorn seems to be the only well-known free streaming adult video site that has embraced the uber-popular tablet.
This new found support for HTML5 by the adult industry marks a blow against Adobe’s Flash technology as its been the standard among free streaming adult video sites for several years now. It also can be considered a blow against Apple as they’ve been trying their best to keep porn off of the App Store ever since it was launched back in 2008.
With the rising popularity of the iPad, this move was inevitable. Like it or not, the adult entertainment industry has a lot of pull in what technology stays and goes. It happened with the fight between Beta Max & VHS, HD-DVD & Blu-Ray, and it looks like the same will inevitably happen between Flash & HTML5.
What say you, dear reader? Does YouPorn’s support for the iPad make you more likely to buy the Apple tablet? Do you think the adult industry’s embracing HTML5 indicate a sad future for Adobe and Flash?
