  1. Just like the iPhone and iPod Touch, Apple's iPad doesn't support Flash, and Adobe isn't thrilled about it. The company offered a statement to Gizmodo, saying that Apple is continuing to impose restrictions on its devices that limit both content publishers and consumers.

    That damn MadTV sketch scarred me for life, every time I hear iPad it comes to mind. At least it has one pro firewall lol.

    iPad is a lame name. W/e. Right now the iPAD, imho, sucks. Would be better if it used OSX. Or some OSX Lite.

    I agree thatguyandrew92 but people will still buy it, just like they do all the other Apple products.

    I laughed when I was this youtube video but its so true in regards to Apple fanboys.
  6. Apple finds another untapped market segment: people who want an eBook reader but actually don't want to read. not impressed. - elise pipu, UK -

    I hope fujitsu rakes 'em over the coals. I'm so sick of all the i this i that from crapple. And to their defense maybe they can come up with a flash alternative so Adobe flash doesn't have so much of a monopoly (still angry about the long time lack of gpu support). <Yeah I'm angry today ;) >

    Yeah, why not? They fought over Cisco for the rights to use the iPhone name... Typical Apple.

    If they settle it might be a nice cash infusion for Fujitsu.

    With GPU enabled flash support available now, i do see this as a major oversight on apples part, and one of my biggest annoyances with them.

    What!!! It iPad does not support flash?!!! It comes me into suspicion that it is more of a mobile phone than a computer. Most mobile phones cannot play flash for which I think most recent devices must be able to since flash is almost a commodity not only in the web but also on most applications. How would the user play flash games (esp. farmville) and watch flash videos in iPad if it doesn't have the flash support?!...
