so disappointing and massively wrong of apple. That statement by Steve Jobsjust makes me angry, so arrogant.... I work with a lot of internet techies thatare all anti Apple and I spend a lot of time defending Apple as I love my iphone.After reading that though I may just give in.
I want an ipad but a huge part of the internet I use involves flash video,so it's the Galaxy tab for me where the flash player works fantastically. Infact flash works brilliantly on many many computers and devices just notApples, a joke Apple, sort it out. You are the problem not Adobe.
If the internet is going to HTML5 and it's better, then great, we'll allbenefit when it happens. I don't want to sit around waiting; I want to use theInternet now. Why Apple can't you sort it out then move on when we get HTML5,it's just stupid!

These are user-to-user forums, Apple do not monitor these forums (there are too many forums/threads/messages for that to happen). And it is up to Adobe to create a version of their flash player that works on iOS, something which they have failed to do, and which they have given up on.

Adobe is making server software that detects iOS devices, strips off the flash wrapper crud and just streams the h.264 video.
Websites will have to buy this $1000 crap and deploy it instead of using free html5.
Does not enable flash on the iPhone.

No Flash = Gash end of.
Apple is losing ground in the smartphone market.Android now accounts for over 50% and will continue to grow.
The consumers dictate what features they want from their devices. Apple doesn't deliver
I would not play over the odds for a CD Player that only plays SACD's and not CD's. I just want a device that can give me the desktop experience. Apple can dress this up however they like but they are denying the public a killer feature and also themselves many many more sales.
I really cant understand why people pay through the nose of an iphone. There are far cheaper and better options out there.

That's a very nice way thinking
Steve Jobs did alot good innovation
remember when he saw the problem on the phone is the keypad
" because this button can't change "
" just make one big screen "
And now almost all smart phones use this.
The world changed because his thinking.
What about flash ?
it's too old, flash was designed for PCs and mice.
Then flash security is not good.
So I think, flash didn't meet the requirements. Now HTML5 on the road.
we're glad we didn't hold our breath too long.

After reading Steve jobs reply on the Flash player subject I felt that he made a decission that should be left to the consumer of his products. One simple way of solving this issue is to just add a flash player "on/off" button along with a fancy disclaimer to the owner of the device. Paying over $500 for a device and being told how and what to do with it does not seem to be worth the money to me. I love apple devices but I sincerely think they are making a mistake on this subject.

You stated; "I love apple devices but I sincerely think they are making a mistake on this subject."
Then explain to me why is the iPad outselling everything if Apple make such a terrible mistake?
