Some people want flash animations and videos.

they aren't blocking anyone. adobe can still support flash and
developers can still write for it.

if you want flash buy something that runs it. very simple and the
market will decide whether it matters or not.

so far, it does not appear to matter at *all*. the ipad is one of the
fastest selling products ever (1 million in less than a month, and only
in one country, and with limited supplies) along with nearly 100
million iphones and ipod touches in the last couple of years.

android doesn't run flash either. although the next release supposedly
will have flash, it will only work on recent android devices with a
fast enough cpu. that means most android devices won't be able to run
flash, at all.

windows phone 7 won't have flash either, because microsoft wants you to
run silverlight. in fact, apps for windows phone 7 need to be written
in silverlight. nice platform lock-in there, even more so than apple,
but you don't hear about how microsoft is anti-flash, do you?

actually they don't. what they want is to watch video and play games.
they don't care *how* that happens, only that they can do it.

they can easily do both of those on an iphone or ipad *without* flash.
youtube has been streaming h.264 for three years, starting when the
iphone first came out, and now vimeo and other sources do too. a lot of
video does *not* require flash.

farmville will be an iphone native and mafia wars already is. there are
tens of thousands of other games available, *right now*.

almost all of mobile app sales is for an iphone device, that does not
run flash. users don't seem to give a flying **** that it can't. in
fact, the top complaints about the iphone doesn't even mention flash at
all.

that was not rejected because it was free.

apple doesn't block skype which allows free phone calls, not to mention
that apple doesn't make money if you make a phone call or not, that's
at&t or whatever carrier the user has. there are also apps that can
send/receive text messages for free. apple even *demoed* skype when
they announced iphone os 4.0.

Oh? They're allowing Flash to run on iPhones now?

buy something that runs whatever it is you want to run. nobody,
including apple, is preventing you from doing that.

nope. ask iphone users if the lack of flash matters.

other than a few vocal blowhards, very few care. multiple user
satisfaction surveys put at&t at the top of the list of problems. flash
isn't even *listed*.

then what does 'has already done that' mean in response to prohibiting
free apps, if not rejecting it because it was free?

I've been playing with my new iTouch for the past week or so -
coming from a Palm TX and a 60-gig iPod "Classic".

Sheesh!.... everything they say about Apple being the shiznit
UI-wise is true IMHO.

The UI on this thing is soooooo intuitive and soooo functional.

No question in my mind that the Palm is still better for
tightly-focused functionality like Calendaring and Contacts....
but now that I've gotten a taste of the iTouch's integration of
Contacts, Skype, Mapping, and so-forth I have stopped looking
back.

So, in fact, you lied your ass off and now you're trying to change the
subject.
