Ah CNN does this and it always annoys me. I don't really think there are many good cases for this technique. I like that in the YouTube app you can have the video in the corner while browsing for more content, that kinda makes sense. But next to an article like in CNN, I'm not sure what they expect me to do; pay attention to the video or read the article?
