This is a discussion on WHY is the lack of Flash your biggest annoyance? within the Apple iPad Polls forums, part of the Apple iPad Forums category; Originally Posted by robertlc Originally Posted by SweetPoison Ya think?

Yeah, put words in my mouth. This has nothing to do with my feelings on flash. So many people "need it" but wont give any reasons why. The Dead Horse arguement? Really? Funny, I am not bashing Apple, Jobs or the iPad for not having Flash...
I am just trying to find out WHY people think Flash is so important.
But I thought the lack of a USB port (a "real" USB port, not the CCK!) or not being able to access the file system was the biggest annoyance with the iPad....
I am sooooo confused!
Personally I find not the lack of flash in itself annoying but rather the dummies that should have researched the iPad....should have KNOWN that Apple hates flash...and STILL yet scream when they find out that their iPads do not support it.
The perfect response would be along the lines of....
Same with those that are screaming at Apple to put Flash in......Never gonna happen folks.
HTML5 is the future anyways. More secure, faster and MUCH less power hungry.
I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.
Well, I accommodated your request andlisted just a few of the sites that I use at least on a weekly basis that use Flash. There are more, but I'm not going to waste my time listing every site I've used that doesn't fully function or forces me to use an alternative site.
Digikid: HTML5 may be "the future" but guess what? I don't have a time machine, so I'm living in the present, not in the future, and right now there are many sites that I can't access on the iPad because it's not the future yet, it's now. If Apple wants to hold a stupid grudge against Adobe for eternity, they have every right to do so, but at least some of their customers are not happy about it.
Like I said, the lack of Flash isn't my biggest annoyance, but it is one reason that Apple has lost at least one customer (me) who would have probably bought the iPad 2. Instead I will be buying an Android based tablet and enjoying the COMPLETE web as well as a much nicer and customizable user interface. I'm sure I'm not the only iPad owner who will be making the switch in a few months.
The flash support is an annoyance ...for simple tiny reasons. I was trying to upload a picture to a blogging website and there was no way to do it. I touch the upload image button and nothing happens. I mean it's not that important I still love this thing, but it's the little things that become a nuisance and as said before limit your web browsing experience.

I was also thinking if I seriously made a mistake in buying the iPad. Instead of waiting for what android had to offer. But I dont think that android will pull off something better than the iPad so far as design, touch interface, and performance go.

It would be VERY easy for Apple to implement something into Safari like I have enabled on my notebook's Firefox similar to "Flash Block." This allows me to conserve battery life by not displaying Flash content. But what it does do is give me a little icon that I simply click if I do want to view that particular content.
This way Apple could maintain it's battery life claims. If you want to view Flash content your battery life may vary. Simple enough. But it won't happen because Steve Jobs is holding an elementary school style grudge.
