Submission + - CBS testing HTML5 iPad video out in the open (engadget.com)

suraj.sun writes: MacRumors took "iPad — test — dan config — 3" content from the CBS.com homepage for a spin and discovered what appears to be HTML5 (not Flash) video. A bit more sleuthing reveals several "webkit" (the foundation of the iPad's and iPhone's mobile Safari browser) calls after peeling open the CSS. This suggests that CBS is preparing to serve up parallel HTML5 content with the launch of the notoriously Flash-less iPad — take that Hulu — becoming yet another high-profile company swayed into providing video and other content in an Apple friendly format.
