    FYI
    I have noted no difference in charge life after running Frash for a week. At the end of the workday i still have 50-55% charge.:)

    But isn't frash depandant on you clicking on every flash item? Therefore unless you're doing that it's not really an indication yet. The real test will come with flash video.

    flash video and also closing safari with a page using frash so frash is running in the background.

    I have added a button for disabling frash completely in SBSettings.

    I leave a lot of Frash activated links open on web pages all day doesn't seem to matter.maybe video will be a drag.to me any increased battery drain would be akin to turning on wifi or Bluetooth on my phone( which are huge battery drains) when I deem necessary. I just plug it in. It's not like I'm going to not use my Bluetooth on a long car ride because there is some new technology being developed that can circumvent it's use.once html5 is ubiquitous on the web, fine. When will that be? I read an article in 2000 on how java was soon to be obsolete. until then, I seek the work around rather than the sigh or curse.:)

    Not really sure what difference video will make, since there is already a way tp play flash encoded video on the iPad and it acts just like any other video.
