    I would like to remain a member of this forum and will in turn be respectful to others...I understand I can't just insult other members and get away with it so I won't do it again!

    Thank you!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for the most precise, clearest explanation. I was never smart enough to figured out the what's and whys except that flash player took a lot of space etc. I erroneously thought I could convert files as one does wav or MP3.

    I will quit the hunt for the perfect APP to download and wait for the rest of the world to catch up to my favorite device. I have wasted so much time
    checking out the Apps for the answer that you had all along. I am so glad I posted.

    Thank you.

    Huh? What does that mean? Are you saying that you can open and manipulate office files on flash which is nearly irrelevant?? Really? I can't get my feeble mind around that all encompassing statement.

    But i can say that I really disagree with your point that flash is irrelevant. It is VERY RELEVANT to small tv and radio stations in local cities who have invested in Windows hardware and software.. None of their videos or recordings can be seen or heard on the iPad because of the flash platform of the littler stations in little cities. They are not going to be heard on our iPads. We can't hear or see what is going on in their towns because they cannot afford to buy all new fancy equipment. They are stuck with flashplayer video and wva audio until the economy gets better.. which will be decades in some towns. We must still be able to hear from them. If flash becomes irrelevant we won't be able to hear the news and happenings in small town America unless they are hit with a disaster and big time ABC , MSNBC comes to town. The big networks can and have made changes for the most part because they have big budget. But the smaller towns, the multitudes, are equally important. But the big networks only broadcast big news from big cities or scandalous Hollywood nonsense news in their videos. There is a whole other part of America that cannot communicate with iPads because of $, poor economy and alot of other problems we cannot solve on our dear iPad forum. The point is those people are relevant and their means of communicating to us big city, high tech people is limited and relevant. Flash is very relevant to them. Please think of all of the multitudes that you mention on a daily basis. They need flash to keep their studios going and to air their news to the locals. But unfortunately only the locals will hear it. Try going on your iPad to the sites of even medium cities like Orlando and try to watch the videos and news of their city on WFTV or WESH ..we can't on iPad. Flash is very relevant for those cities to get out their stories in pictorial video which is the preferred way to get news rather than reading PDFs..

    just a thought...

    This thread reminds me of early posts about the iphone. I still have my original, and still love it...I haven't been so organized since the days of bulging filofax, and if I lose it, no prob--it's all backed up.

    I'm about to buy an ipad--for my mobile life, it will be a lot easier than schlepping the laptop and yet fills in where the iphone cannot go...I'm on this forum just to find out what's going on so I'm prepared for whatever the shortcomings are--no one thing does everything, after all.

    Apple addressed many of the early iphone complaints with software upgrades, from backing up notepad--remember when it didn't?-- lately adding cut and paste, and lots of stuff in between. So I'm not so worried about what the ipad won't do at the moment. I want it for word-processing on the go, books, movies, and bigger pictures of my work to show/discuss with clients in introductory interviews.

    And I just know it will be fun!
