    Adobe Responds to the iPad's Lack of Flash - apple ipad - Gizmodo

    Another of the millions of reasons why DRM only hurts the consumer.

    I think the real reason is Apple would lose control and more developers would focus on building apps/games in Flash rather then for the app store.

    I think when flash is released on the mobile platforms it will change the game entirely.

    Apple will crumble under Adobes power in my honest opinion.

    Adobe has made themselves a requirement in todays times.

    Unlike the ever-trying Apple sadly.


    If Apple got destroyed, the effect would only be to apple users.

    If Adobe got destroyed, the effect would be the entire world wide web.

    Let it also be known that through progress this could be great but currently I don't want it.

    The lack of flash makes me a bit annoyed while browsing the web with my iPhone, it's almost a deal breaker for the ipad.

    Flash is from Adobe, they are indeed a dinosaur roaming around trying to dictate what is good and what is bad, I dont like flash, personally, and I like the fact and hope that flash is kept out of the mix. Far too much garbage will be let in. Then instead of a app store with 150K apps there will be some absurd number. Too much for the average person to navigate now, so it would be insanity and the appstore would die. What would replace it, Adobe....I dont like control but they have way too much power. I vote against adobe, and hope they go do something with MS and stay away from apple.

    If flash was included the product would cost way more...This is no more then a console like ps3,wii,xbox, etc.... Requires you to use there media. If you could use another console game/application, the price would be higher because the company cant bank on a proprietary system apps/games. I will buy one because i like new things, but this is not new technology or something i would recommend to the average buyer. Not to mention no divx support or camera. We are going back to early 2000's. Who has time to encode files!

    Adobe's flash empire is already in some decay, but I suspect it will be the ipad app devs who inflict a mortal wound. They should make the ipad irresistable to the masses (along with the UI and Apple's incredible advertising budget), and then it's game over for flash.
    All sounds a bit LOTR :D

    Not having flash at this point doesn't really bother me that much. I think a hands-on with it will tell me more and if I really need it for the daily browsing and work that I do on the web currently.
