You will now be able to watch movies through Facebook. Warner Brothers is allowing users to rent The Dark Knight and stream it right through the site. You can use Facebook Credits to purchase the movie and $3 gives you a 480hour rental. More titles will be available in coming months. In other news, Google has officially purchased Next New Networks, a video production company, to help make better YouTube content. The company specializes in producing low cost professional video content and its YouTube channel has attracted billions of views. Google knows that better content means more ad revenue. And finally, Adobe Labs has created a new tool called Wallaby that will play Flash files on devices that don’t normally support it. The software converts Flash to HTML5 on the go and was created to help iOS compatibility. The solution isn’t perfect but it will give your iPad Flash.
