Steve Jobs ignites war of words over Flash
 
:shooter:
Quote:

When Steve Jobs, the Apple chief executive, demonstrated web browsing on its latest gadget – the iPad – last month, the video player on the New York Times homepage did not appear. Instead, there was a small blue icon indicating that Flash, the multimedia software made by Adobe, was not installed.

Critics seized on the absence of Flash – a crucial tool for displaying video and interactive content – as a fatal flaw of the iPad. Flash is already missing from the iPhone and iPod touch, Apple’s multi-function pocket-sized mobile devices, but its omission from the iPad, which is optimised for web browsing, would be an enormous handicap.

A war of words has since broken out between Flash’s supporters and detractors. Advocates, including Adobe, say Flash is integral to the internet and its ubiquity is a testament to its success.

Isn't there anyway to get flash on the Ipod touch!? :O
You might have saved me from making a mistake. :D

The device is a joke. Want something like that? Look into alternatives like HP Slate which even runs Win 7 and I think will be cheaper than 500$.

Some sites provide movies in a mp4 format, which allows you to play movies instead of a flash based movieplayer.
But the actual flash isn't supported for iPod Touch and iPhone.
Adobe would want to, but Apple just doesn't want it.

I do believe Adobe has said that they'll improve flash for Mac in their 10.1 version (if I'm right about the version).

jeez...from what i understand, Macs are decent machines that serve a purpose. If this same man had a major role in the creation/production/design or these devices then how could he forget the basics?
