im looking at getting a ipod touch after the Mac event in January i think. Just in case they made a change to it, you never know just want to be on the safe side.

my question is, can i go to website like ign.com and watch videos on it or break.com iv heard that the touch does not support adobe flash. if this is true, did apple give a reason as to why they wouldnt include it since so many sites require flash.

YouTube is built in, but there is no flash player.

Why?
My guess: Flash is a resource hog. It barely plays on a 1.4Ghz G4. Apple knows it won't work at all on a 400Mhz portable.

schweb This has to be one of the best threads ever in MF history...
Cherokee This gets my vote for most innovative thread on Mac-Forums... ever.

Yeah, you just get a little icon thing for any media player on a website.

I was reading some stuff on this the other day. People have different opinions on the possibilities of a future flash plugin being available.
