Halfbrick, creators of the widely popular Fruit Ninja [$0.99], have been on fire lately. They’ve already released two more games in addition to the successful fruit-killing game and also released ‘Fruit Ninja Kinect’ recently”.

Netflix for iPad is available now, even though the luckiest consumers won't see an iPad until tomorrow, leaving many iPhone owners wondering, where is their Netflix app?

A Netflix app for streaming video on the iPhone may be in the cards if a survey they're sending to customers is any indication. The company has begun asking their users about their level of interest in an iPhone application that would allow them to stream TV episodes and movies right on their iPhone over a Wi-Fi network.

According to Hastings, Netflix is spending most of their time focusing on "larger screens," and that an iPhone or iPad app is something they'd "get around to" once they've become ubiquitous in other areas.
"We haven't yet done or submitted an iPhone application," Hasting's said. "We're optimistic that ... it could be approved but there's no way of really knowing in advance what Apple's stance would be on that. Of course, that application, if it works on the iPhone would work on the iPad."
According to a Q and A session with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Reuters reports that Netflix has no intention of bringing streaming video to the iPhone. Netflix has instead decided to expand their horizons in the areas of TV-based business and consumer electronics.
Word from "an industry executive familiar with Netflix’s plans" says Netflix intends to offer a video streaming service for devices like the Nintendo Wii, iPhone and iPod touch. The service will allow users on the go to stream movies right to their devices over the air so they can watch them whenever and wherever they want. Speculation is that the service will (understandably) be restricted to Wi-Fi only, as it will be a high-bandwidth service, but nonetheless add a great deal of freedom to one's movie-watching.
