    WHY is the lack Flash your biggest annoyance?

    People keep saying the lack of Flash is their biggest annoyance, but not why or what they are not able to accomplish because of the lack of flash. "Cause I cant go to websites." is not an acceptable answer - what websites? Pron (misspelled on purpose) sites? FB Games? Seriously, why is Flash "so required" for internet use?

    In truth deckyon it ain't that important. Not a show stopper anyway. I haven't found it to limit anything I have wanted to do. Perhaps though, that is because I use the iPad mostly for business orientated stuff.

    I bought the iPad primarily for mobile browsing. I knew the iPad didn't do Flash when I bought it, so it was no surprise.. What did surprise me was how many of the sites I was visiting were flash based.

    For example, I'm considering buying a new car... All the North American car sites have a 'build your own' section where you pick a model and add all the options you want and then get a price.. ALL of these web apps are flash based. I had to go to my desktop computer to use the feature. That's one example.. There are quite a few other sites I can't use because of the missing Flash.

    It's not the end of the world, but my browsing is a lot more limited than I thought it would be...

    I browse YouTube and several other video sites quite a bit. Success varies from not working at all to YouTube which is missing a lot of videos from the standard site compared to the iPad.

    You want me to list all of them? I'll list a few, but I visit quite a few semi-regularly.

    -Discovery Channel
    -Discovery Health
    -BBC News (I know I can just read the text, but it's nice to see the video of the story to, really helps you get a feel for it, a picture is worth a thousand words right?)
    -Porsche Web Cinema (Porsche makes some of the best car commercials in the world, I love watching them over and over again, not on my iPad though :( )
    -Interactive stock market charts don't function correctly on almost every site I've been on.
    -It was already mentioned above, but shopping for a new car? I am. Don't think you can use the configuration tool to price/spec the car the way you want. 360 degree image viewing? Nope. Interactive displays? Nope.
    -Oh, and for me the deal breaker, my school's interactive site for retrieving records, checking transcripts, registering for classes, etc, doesn't work correctly.
    -Also my favorite adult site, XHamster doesn't work.

    I could go on, but there's no point.

    I understand you are trying to convince people that they really don't need Flash. But just because you are ok with it, doesn't mean the rest of us are.

    Oh, and it's not my biggest annoyance. My biggest annoyance is not being able to change simple things in the user interface and add widgets and stuff for instant display of information without opening an app.

    But the Flash thing is bothersome, errrrr, was bothersome until I essentially gave up using my iPad because of several of the sites I visit regularly not working correctly.
