    The real reason ipad does not have flash?

    It's pretty simple, apple doesn't want you to be able to stream tv or videos for free as that would hurt itunes movies and shows sales. Also they would not sell as many games because there are tons of free flash games. This is the main reason for not doing it because would you really buy shows if you could just use hulu for free. This whole excuse it kills the battery or takes up alot of memory is just crazy.

    Anyway comcast might create an app that uses their xfinity site and that alone with be the best app ever for the ipad. It's like hulu but better no ads and you get to watch all the networks including hbo, showtime, cinemax, etc. Whatever you have at home pretty much.

    It's so funny to hear people who really know nothing about the web talk about how html5 is better and flash will be history very soon. Ask any web designer if he thinks flash is going anywhere anytime soon. Apple will bring flash to the ipad when android picks up and people see their tablets running flash with no problem.

    You just have a crappy attitude and have to ***** about something new every day, don't you?

    Funny, cause I stream off Vimeo, YouTube, NetFlix, Hulu+, my own media at home... And BBC soon too. And ABC. The list could keep going, but I think the point about streaming on the iPad has been made. But, how am I doing that without flash on the iPad? I must be in an alternate universe.

    *** is wrong with you?

    Why are you even on this site? All you do is complain and try to tell us the "truth" and "the real reason" behind everything.

    Most Flash games don't work worth a crap on a touch screen anyways, since 90% of them use arrow keys and/or the mouse, they would be worthless on all touch devices. Unless you connect a bluetooth/USB mouse and keyboard up to it, and at that point, it might as well be a laptop.

    Dang dude did I break your apple heart, anyway just telling the truth I'm not complaining. Netflix, Hulu+ cost money so that's different you pay for that. And your home media has nothing to do with flash. Flash is a way to do and get stuff for free. Hulu alone would hurt itunes sales so much. Anyway I'm sorry just stating the facts so people don't argue how bad it is for performance ok. Calm down steve jobs is not god or mine at least, it's ok if he lies every once in a while. It's like he's lying to his kids for their benifit, make you feel like flash sucks.

    and I wouldn't want have anything to do with comcast since they are trying to charge more for streaming Netflix..the Internet is supposed to be open and now they want to charge more for streaming videos because more and more people are streaming and getting rid of cable. it's been in the news the last few days because the FCC is voting on net neutrality soon.

    Odd, I watch Hulu just fine on the iPad.
    Pretty soon I`ll be streaming it if I have the need.

    It was obvious to me that Flash was a bloated unstable resource hog even back when I was a Windows user.

    The irony is that I could never find a stable platform to run downloaded Flash content until I got on a Mac and installed Perian.

    As for Comcast, I ditched them years ago for cable TV and just as soon as Verizon runs that FIOS cable down my street they`ll be totally out of my life.
    Corrupt corporate asswipes for sure.

    The real lesson is this tard is nothing more than a troll. If you don't agree with him, you are all of a sudden a "fanboy". Why the he'll are you even posting on this site anymore?

    FLASH discussions are just beating dead horses.

    As well as being a huge security hole.

    I do not miss Flash.

    I just got the Xfinity app and I can now control my TV with my iPad, but I don't think you can watch shows on your iPad. Will there be another app?

    I think because of battery life and smoothe scrolling and a good user experience in Safari.
