Just think about it. With all the new and advanced technologies available in the iPod Touch and iPhone, wouldn't it be possible to make Strong Bad Emails and other toons keep all of their easter eggs? You would just touch the screen instead of clicking the mouse. If you don't believe me about what they can can do, just visit

I mean, I'm writing this from my iPod right now!

Unfortunately, it's not just what the iPod itself is capable of that matters, but also the movie file itself... the podstar downloads are just ordinary movie files, with a start and an end and no interactivity whatsoever.

It'd probably be possible to make an iPhone app or suchlike just to play the toon, that'd let you build in your interactivity stuff, but that sounds like a lot of work, for very little gain. It'd also restrict it to just people with an iPhone or iPod Touch, whereas the podcast at the moment works for any video-playing iPod, and also PSPs too (I think... possibly they need to be converted first, I'm not sure).

I suppose if you wait long enough, Apple might make something for the iPod that can play the Flash toons directly, and then you'll have all the Easter eggs you can use.
