    hello,

    I am looking into getting ipad for work but need to be able to surf java and flash based websites. would the ipad allow me to do this?

    If not built in - are there any apps or mods that will allow me to?


    thanks!

    iPad does not have flash....Steve Jobs doesn't like flash. There may be an app that will allow flash....read the iPad News for info on it. The jury is still out if it works or not.

    Flash: No.

    As CMfox explained, Steve Jobs have a problem with Flash.

    Point of note: Can anyone explain what is the problem with this? What's Job's option of Flash? Why do he don't like it?

    Java: I don't know. Haven't heard anything about this part. Can anyone still answer riamo's question about this part?

    I guess HTML 5 is faster that flash, and this tech will be the trend for web videos...

    It will take a significant amount of time (years) before HTML5 replaces Flash completely (if ever).

    The iPad supports LIMITED Javascript, seems most school websites that use Java don't work fully with the iPad.

    Could it be that Flash allows executables that have not been vetted (not to mention purchased) through the AppStore?

    The official rationale could be that this is is a security issue. It also breaches the "walled garden" of course.

    Now countless sales people point to Apple's rival Android tablets and say "it is not an iPad but at least it does Flash". Not sure that level of advertising was what Steve had in mind. Flash does what it is made to do, it works and works fine. People point at the load time on flash websites so it takes a bit of time to load Flash content it is better than not content at all. I own a Samsung Captivate watched a YouTube video comparing it to the iPhone 4. The comment was see all these blank squares this is how the iPhone 4 displays flash, "I would gladly trade a bit in lag to see the content"
