    With Skyfire App you are able to play Flash Videos on your iPad. It is a Fantastic App and I was waiting for it.

    You can use the iPhone version on the iPad for now, but I am disappointed in the reliability of the app, there are many Flash heavy sites that Skyfire won't work on at all... so you have no idea, when you buy it, whether or not it will open the sites you want... it did not open the sites I wanted for my family.

    Shouldn't the focus be on what the CUSTOMERS want on the iPad, not what APPLE wants on them?

    So there should have been a poll to see who wanted what on the iPad? Most I know that have it, KNEW it wasn't going to come with flash ~ and they still bought it.

    If you want flash don't get one. Right?

    Actually, YES!

    In case you didn't realize it, businesses do a crazy thing called 'market research' to determine what customers want BEFORE developing a product. Quite often, this 'research' does, in fact, include 'POLLS'. Wild, huh?

    So if Ford or Toyota sells cars without a feature that buyers are clamoring for, they should just ignore the customers and tell them "go buy something else from some other company"? That makes zero sense.

    AGREED! And I think that Mr. Jobs is going to have to realize that sooner or later. He allows owners of the brand new MacAirBook decide for themselves whether or not to install Flash, WHY should an iPad be any different? WE own it after all... it should be the decision of the owner, not the manufacturer, of the iPad that decides what is installed.

    I guess a lot of folks didn't care. How many iPads have been sold?

    Why are you so angry? Buy something with a flash and chill out.

    There are at least three different ways to do Flash on the iPad (SkyFire, Cloud Browse, using a VNC program into your desktio/laptop, none of which kill your battery iife as the heavy lifting is done away from your iPad.

    The success of the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch means that Flash will be a non-issue soon anyway, no wen site in its right mind is going to ignore hundreds of millions of potential users. The only sites that still use Flash will be corporate sites that move very slowly, look at how many still use IE6.
