Plenty of news apps that streamed videos from there. U could always try out Iswifter, app that played flash video very well and streams sounds from sites. It works pretty well.
Thanks Col for your sympathy and offer of help. Thank you too, Demandarin for your advice. Back in Japan now, thankfully far away from the terrible events up north, which are nevertheless really depressing. Anyhow I now have time to do some research into possible jailbreaking etc. Anyhow, thanks again. Y.
Who else saw that chart....I forgot where it was published on line ? The point being that others are realizing the limits of flash and by next year it won't be an issue but because Jobs stuck by his belief that it was defective it forced change. Sometimes it be that way....seen the thread with people trying to create a mouse for iPad?....... Whaaaaaat? My son just told me he saw a mini type writer keyboard that fits up to the iPad and the stems pop up and touch the iPad screen as you "type"! It's all good. Jeanée
