    Another flash only site down the drain.

    Since changing my newspaper reading to "e" versions, the only thing I ended up missing is the Sunday Ads.

    Well, Target has a great iPad app that displays it's Sunday ad perfectly.

    Best Buy was still stuck in Flash mode and I had to read it on my desktop or navigate through a clunky HTML interface.

    This morning, I noticed the BB's weekly ad worked perfectly on the iPad.

    You could've viewed Flash versions of both using the Puffin browser in the App Store.

    After my experience yesterday, I don't believe I will be making many in store purchases from there anymore.

    I'd rather have my teeth pulled, one by one then use Puffin.

    Not sure why any website would not convert their retail ads to HTML 5.
    I'm sure its not rocket science.
