The Ipad is a fantastic tool and I love it. However, like in any love story, there are always some nagging issues that might lead to brutally ending it..

One is not being able to access flash content. I have read the communication by Mr Steve Jobs in this respect but, basically, what he says is "we do not care", which looks to me as an insult to web users who crawl over so many flash based websites. But maybe it is Apple's policy to cast a despising look over what is not Apple branded. Speak of proprietary issues!!!

Finally, Mr Jobs refers to a recent past when Apple and Adobe were business partners and were entertaining a shareholding relationship. Since Apple is now sitting on a gigantic pile of cash, I would suggest them to make some use of it and, for instance, take over Adobe....

That might contribute to a better world where approximately 50% of the existing websites are not off-limits.

I would like to ask you what website you need uses and needs flash to operate?

I own an Android phone that runs full flash and I can say that flash sucks. Almost nothing really works with the touch screen because it was designed for a cursor/mouse.

On my phone, flash makes my phone lag a little bit and it is running a similar 1 GHz processor.

I can see where you're coming from, but flash really sucks on touch screens.

People said that about the iPhone and how'd that work out?

Your making an assumption about the pervasiveness of Flash on websites. Many websites do not use Flash and if they do, a good majority of them use it for ads. On top of this, many sites where Flash is "required" (YouTube as a prime example) offer alternatives. For instance, I haven't watched a video in Flash on YouTube in quite some time. I use Opera as my web browser and therefore get the WebM version of YouTube videos. That takes care of most of my Flash needs.

50%? That number is way too high. There is no way that 50% of websites require you to use Flash to view content. If it did, people wouldn't use FlashBlock or other Flash blockers.

I don't support candidates that will say anything to be elected, and avoid answering questions like the plague.
