    well the thing is, flash is a dying technology but soon you should see your idevice begin to play more and more videos online that the idevice's actually support, but yeah if you really want flash there are a few paid apps in the app store you can use to get it

    The only people Apple cares about are those who haven't bought their products yet.

    If people hold out, they'd get flash. Since they don't, they get the new Ipad (Edit: I mean iPad)

    Even for Android flash will not be longer developed, so your argument is invalid.

    Flash has been on its way out for a while now.... HTML 5 is where it's at.

    It's easier to simply choose platforms that allow you to make your own choices versus having to hope and pray company XYZ will "permit" you to use useful plugins with thousands of useful applications.

    While I do agree that flash it on it's way out, I can still have Flash AND html5 on my machines without worrying about whether someone will permit me to have both.

    Steve Jobs was a fucking idiot when it came to flash. So many porn sites still use flash only,and I bet the majority of people that bought other tablets did so cause of the porn reason.

    Why should we introduce an old feature into a new product? With Apple, the great thing that they do is, when they release a product or a feature, they do it right the first time... Flash is starting to be outdated, a little more faster than physical media. Let's not introduce a new feature that will die out in 2 years. Yet, let's perfect the use of HTML5, introduce it before anyone else, while others are still on the outdated use of flash.

    Having flash will allow the creation flash app markets, which could create competition between Apple's App Store, and the flash market, which will cost Apple Millions. Flash on the iPhone will basically implement the one thing Apple is afraid of... Competition.

    Steve helped put Adobe on the map when they were first starting out. And then they refused to do a Mac version of photoshop. Steve Jobs couldn't take this shit, so he refused Flash support on ipod/ipad.

    RIP Steve Jobs, fuck flash/adobe.

    Because flash would kill the app store. HTML5 will do that too, but HTML5 isn't ready for it at the moment. Meanwhile Apple is generating a lot of cash.

    Yeah! Fuck a company that has produced one of the most amazing cross-media, cross-platform development suites that almost everyone uses daily without paying for it!

    But God bless the company that made my first iphone that I bought for $600 on opening day.
