Steve Jobs sent an e-mail to someone that got reported. The two main reasons he mentioned for what was put out, was that any time you have a cross platform used to move apps over several devices, it always slows the process down. Adding layers to programming never speeds things up. The other issue, is that if such a platform gets really popular, and Apple makes some major upgrades to the iPhone, it may keep apps from being usable because the update is not compatible with the cross platform.
I think when...and it is only a matter of time "when" Flash play will convert to html5 play, there will be iPad haters that will reluctantly give due props to Apple for changing the game of mobile computing once again. The day the iPad can reach every site with ease...will be a welcome time to witness the very vocal objectors of today, quietly purchase,use and promote the very device that has uber possibilities that have not yet been realized!
What a time to be alive and know a device in it's earliest form already generates such massive game changing potential in it's rookie season!

Apple has often been the first computer company to drop obsolete technologies. And every time, the complaints are loud and clear. Floppies, serial ports, printer ports, etc. The were the only company that successfully produced an all-in-one computer. The programs and technologies that they created are responsible for most of our improvements in the field. Not all their products were winners, but without Apple, and Steve Jobs, our lives would not be as rich. Adobe has also produced some products that have moved computing forward, but lately their emphasis has been on adding features to already obsolete programs. That goes completely against the basic tenet of Apple which is Keep It Simple.
I take a look at MS based system but no software available need to hire someone wrote the software for you and look like too complicated.. i go to mac they have all in one software including accounting (Ciel) … so i bough 1 Mac LCII, and 1 Mac Classic (classic color later) , and little later powerbook 100 (later 160)
And now i use MBP and iMac 27’’, iPhone 3Gs , iPad …. I have see in the past how photoshop is a great products , but from the CS4 i try to don’t use it as too many option but not the one i need (like rotate a calque) … i dislike flash because too many web site use it for AD with loud music every time i arrive in one like that i close the tab and move around
I am not a programmer, or a Nerd i am just a computer user and i just want machine work fine the more fast as it’s possible … and i don’t want to have anti-virus, anti bootcode, anti-that, anti-this …
No more later than yesterday, one of my friend call me saying sorry for the spam my machine send you, i got a virus … some hour later he text me saying : i have to re install all my PC due to so many virus inside … WHO NEED TO DO THE SAME IN MAC , i never heard someone have to do it
Running Flash on my laptop is not that big of a deal since 80% of the time when I use my laptop it is plugged into the AC outlet. I dont even realize any issues with the battery drain using Flash. NOW, if Flash is going to zap 50% of my battery life on my iPad then that will be an issue and im glad Apple is not going to allow this. I use my iPad 99.9% on battery and defiantly do not want to worry about continually charging it because Flash killed my battery. It would be great if web sites were designed to direct HTML5 to portable units and Flash to non-portable. But then again, make life simple get rid of Flash and make HTML the standard. I dont really see any difference between Flash vs HTML until i start expanding the viewing window and it's barley a difference. I cant figure out why Adobe cant get Flash to use less draw.. I would think they would be working their tail end off to make this happen... Can anyone explain why Flash kills the battery???
I am sitting here watch TV, when one of those insipid Windows 7 commercials come on. and this ditz says how she was thinking and realized that computer use should be simple. Then she says Microsoft comes out with Windows 7 and it was her idea. And I am here thinking that she should have said "So I got a Mac."
