    Also, wealth is not an indicator of inteligence. If he had any inteligence, he would have made sure to code the site using anything but flash to get the largest audience.

    Well, that's not the norm.  Earlier today I went to the CanonUSA site with my iPad and try to get details about their printers.  You guessed it.  Flash!  I put down my iPad and used my Mac.

     

    Flash is not dead.  However, it is a fact that the IOS devices do not support it and, if it's a requirement for any user, then an iPad/iPod/iPhone is simply the wrong product.  No big deal.

    I'd stay away from Puffin unless Vvelveteen doesn't need stereo audio and the hearable stutters / static noise doesn't annoy him (her?). In this case, it's only the third-best player.

     

    Nonsense, Puffin Web Browser plays perfect here on my iPad and you can't hear stereo on the iPad!

    Adobe Announces the end of Flash on phones and tablets, and starts with a far-reaching reorganization. Steve Jobs gets it right: Flash is unsuitable for cell phones with touch control.

     

    Years long was the standard for video and Flash games on the web. But the iPad and the iPhone have again created a victim: Adobe stops the mobile version of Flash, dropped the U.s. software maker today know. Though Flash on 99 percent of the PCs (after all, it works with all operating systems), Apple iOS mobile operating software weerde his system because the Flash player consumes too much power and would be unstable. See iPhone and iPad users, therefore a blue box with a question mark on websites that Flash exhibit. That became the symbol of the struggle for the mobile multimedia standard.

     

    Apple seemed with that Flash-blockade in 2007 just as cocky as in 1998, when the iMac was released without a floppy drive. After four years, it seems a fair choice. For manufacturers of Android devices is that perhaps what acid: they sell their devices often still under the pretext that there is Flash the Bill, unlike the Apple gadgets.

     

    HTML5
    But web and appontwikkelaars have it in the online world for the say. The blue box on the iPad because they want to bypass and preferably for open standards work, they choose massively for alternatives such as CSS3, JavaScript and HTML5. Apple is not the only manufacturer who saw not Flash. Google made, of the mobile operating system Android, soon a Flashloze version of video site YouTube. Therefore Adobe lost its grip on online video, an area that the hitherto dominated. Flash got the last years also a bad name because there are many that are in. Now Adobe is more focus on HTML5 too, but the company still maintains Flash for advanced applications on the pc. Flash on mobiles, meanwhile, was previously a block so Adobe concludes to the bone than a attractive steel map of the capabilities of the company. Sin to wasting energy to.

     

    Adobes choice to stop Flash for mobiles is a posthumous tribute to Apple founder Steve Jobs. Who had a heart thorough dislike Flash. Jobs in any case had a love-hate relationship with Adobe, which makes essential software for professional Mac users. Adobe waited very long with creating a separate versions for Mac OS X operating system and that put evil blood. Apple went own developing software such as iPhoto. The paste at Jobs strive to all parts of the equipment to keep as much as possible in their own hands – to the closed App Store. Software that worked on all kinds of computers he found not good enough. For that reason he wanted to also not that Adobe software was used to develop apps for iOS operating system. Apple Later pulled partly in that requirement.

    1, ever heard of stereo headphones / external speakers?

     

    2, believe me, I know quite a bit about Web browsing and Flash - with these two Web sites, Puffin was only the third best. It only streams audio in mono and with some (not very annoying, but still hearable) distortion.

     

    3, why don't you give these browsers a try yourself to find out which of them is the best, instead of just attacking other people with unfounded "facts"?

    "He" is a "she", and her site is hosted by Sony....also, since "she" has become wealthy by writing the most popular books ever (read by both kids and adults the world 'round), and has been single-handedly responsible for getting kids interested in actually reading books again (the real things....she didn't allow those books to be put into an e-reader form until many years after they had been released), I don't think there is any question about her intelligence.

     

    If there is any lack of intelligence here, I do not believe it lies with either JK Rowling nor Sony....

    Hi Gail, you brought up a very good point that actually bothers me for years now, about intelligence of JK. Love the movies, however I red her books after quite a few books and movies already came out. Can't shake an impression that first two books and the rest, were written by different people. If you doubt it, look over those books with fresh prospective. I do get the point of author getting to be more experienced, talented and so on, but there is different language, complexity and just style. Millions of people, including me enjoyed those, so no disrespect intended, but pretty sure Sony used someone else to write (or help with writing). Just so you know there is another author in similar situation, who started writing, while unemployed, It took her few years to get printed. She is actually to my opinion way better, less popular though. Her name is Lois McMaster Bujold. As it goes with unemployed writer her books kept writing and not the first book of the cycle was picked up after a while for print. Before she was sending those in separately, while having a few done already and writing more. That also tells me the official story of JK is kind of the set up, or we just do not know something. All that is jmho.

    While that is a very interesting conspiracy theory, it has little place in a technical support forum for iPads.

    Actually like most conspiracy theories, it's a load of horse manure.

    With out  doubt. But it's still funny.

    I took the "he" as a reference to the webmaster, who is, undoubtedly, not J.K. Rowling.

     

    Although the webmaster may be a "she," also, it's perfectly acceptable to refer to someone of unknown gender as "he."

    That really hit a nerve with me.  I am proud to have worked on the Apollo moon landing missions and, in fact, I volunteer my time giving presentations at local grade schools.  I have personal evidence that absolutely positively disproves the flag allegations.

    You got it Meg, everything in this thread, has very little to do with tech, past the fact that late Steve made decision, that everyone has to deal with. But the thread goes on, instead of dying, with my humble opinion left in history. Now, did you really read those books, bet you didn't..? I mean with my 200 points I hardly have time to read, you obviously spending day and night here. LOL

    @ James Ward: obviously you didn't come here for anything, but entertainment, thinking otherwise is presumptuous of me. You d be reading something else, not the forums if you needed facts.

      Now judging by those previous hundreds of times, I know you are all real pros, in everything apple. stuff that Meg knows about wireless carriers, has helped me a lot before and Pan is really good. But common guys, whoever thinks I am wrong- read the book one and three and tell me they written by the same person. And I never said I know, if you check the very end of my post, you will see the same as you see here. JMHO.

    I have read all of them, while she elevates each one for an older audience you can tell they are written by the same person.

    I've read them all two or three times (every time a new one came out, I'd have to go back and reread the others!). I concur. The tone of the books ages with the age of the characters.
