    Flash? You gotta be kidding me.

    Since having my iPad this afternoon I've been all over the Internet and something strange is going on..... I'm not running into many of these blue Lego boxes or X marks we're supposed to be seeing.

    In fact most sites, even ones with video appear to be working very well and very fast.

    Me thinks this no-flash thing is way, way overrated.....and way overblown.

    Sent from my iPad.

    That's what I've been saying the entire time.

    Flash is a great thing for the internet, but people are exaggerating how much it is really used on normal websites.

    Totally agree with your statement, I think it is overblown and you can see that it really doesn't matter with the number of websites that are converting to HTML5. Besides there are plenty of games on the iPhone/iPad to keep you busy...paper toss anyone? LOL

    I haven't even got mine and I agree with you. Flash has been the naysayers calling card. Whatever.

    Count me in with one of the naysayers. It is a huge miss.

    However, it was well known before these went on sale that the Apple/Adobe feud continues. So I bought one knowing full well that it would not work on a lot of web sites that I use every day. So be it.

    Completely disagree with you. Try using mvelopes.com without it. I'm very disappointed.
