    I still don’t know why Apple won’t let Flash on the iPad. Maybe he’s too resource-intensive or unstable and they don’t want anything on the device that could jeopardize the user experience. The experience is already jeopardized without him, though.

    Jobs thinks that Adobe had let Flash languish and not kept up with development. Safari on the iPad will be able to handle html5. That has the capability to do everything flash can do and more. It’s another Apple gamble just like USB.

    Actually, Apple is heavily invested in the H264 codec. Apple gets 10-20 cents for every hardware chip that supports html 5 video using H264. Why wouldn’t they push html5 over flash?

    :D Love this!

    I also don’t want Flash on the iAnything (or the internet for that matter). Flash needs to go crawl in to a hole and go away forever.

    Who says comics aren’t educational. I didn’t get this until I read your comments. Thanks. Who remembers Macromedia and Aldus?

    So can I surf on an iPad like I can on my iMac or not?

    On that last question, Steve Jobs’ introductory presentation claims that you can, if anything, surf better on an iPad.

    I remember Macromedia! I remember the name Aldus, but nothing about it…

    I don’t mind Flash at all, but a computer geek among my friends despises it and I assume he has good reasons for doing so. Maybe I just have lower needs or expectations than he does.

    Considering some of Apple’s bad decisions over the years…

    At any rate, remember the golden rule of computing stuff- Never buy anything until it’s been out at least one year. (Two for processors and operating systems.) The bugs are worked out and the price has crashed… (Which is why its h— being an early adopter who buys stuff when it first comes out: you get to be a beta tester and pay the premium price for the privilege!)

    Scott Pilgrim is HTML5, so he’s all right.
