Vulture Bytes: A Hulu Plus Alternative and Free McSweeney’s for the iPhone


This week, while we weren’t preparing Bytes, we tested out the various culture-for-free options that Matthew J. X Malady laid out in Slate. Pop culture never sounded so attainable. But culture on the cheap can still be culture on a gadget. To wit, this week’s selections: McSweeney’s on your iDevice, a hub for long-form journalism, another TV-on-your-phone app, e-books in the library, and gloves that control your iPod by remote.
