So we're in the new year and after quite a number of updates, the device that was supposed to offer internet browsing without compromise still does not support Flash. Forget the question of whether sites should be designed that way - that train left the station long ago. But Apple advertises on its site that "iPhone lets you see web pages the way they were designed to be seen" - where's the qualifier "except when it doesn't"? I can't ever find where Apple has publicly committed itself to supporting Flash; the closest Jobs personally got was telling the New York Times "You might see [Flash support]" but then, how did Walt Mossberg get the very strong impression that Apple WOULD support Flash? He said way back in July 2007, right after the iPhone launch: "Apple says it plans to add that plug-in through an early software update, which I am guessing will occur within the next couple of months." http://mailbox.allthingsd.com/20070705/questions-about-apples-iphone/ I'm guessing when he wrote Apple told him so, he wasn't talking to the security guard at 1 Infinite Loop. So maybe this should be addressed to Mossberg as well as Apple: is Apple ever going to support Flash on the current iPhone?
