Netflix seeking Android engineers to build client for the green robot
Now that movie rental company Netflix has completed building its app for the iPhone/iPad, it is focusing on its next project. To that end, the company has posted on its web site a job opening for an Android Video Playback Expert. The job description explains that the company is seeking a great engineer to help them build "Instant Streaming client implementations on Android devices." The position is for a job opening in Los Gatos, California. Netflix will have a lot of catching up to do on the Android platform as competitor Blockbuster already has a streaming video app that will debut with this month's launch of the Motorola DROID X. Check out the video below to see how the Blockbuster app worked on Android during the CTIA show earlier this year.

I know I shouldn't believe that all apple fans are this immature, but that sounds more and more reasonable with each passing day.

Hey, you Android users are the same way. I mean I already understand the iPhone has reception problems that should be fixed and am already considering returning it for the Droid X, but do I have to be reminded of it every single day in every single iPhone post? And the jokes were funny at first but now they are just downright annoying. I'd say iPhone an android users are one and the same.

yup, these guys have the room to talk about me when i make a joke but here they are talking about iphone and acting like little kids about the signal issue. Why is it that all google fanboys in a iphone article?

ok so wait why is anyone defending ILOVEIPHONE25, he was the first one to post and it was beligerent bullshit, this article was about netflix coming to ANDROID! not to the iphone, so please keep you and your shitty phone in your own articltes, and i promise (because i honestly hate apple) i will not post anything in the iphone articles.
