    It's just a matter of standards. Just take the international television broadcast agreements as a basic example: No matter how any TV station broadcasts a TV signal, it should match the NTSC (worlwide, minus:) or PAL (europe and some African and Latin America countries) definitions, meaning that if you have an old CRT B&W or color television you WILL SEE a full image and audio program. You get lots of HD, advanced SD or digital signals but you can bet that you WILL SEE your old TV working as well.

    Such things said, it's amazing to know that the WWW is NOT ruled or standardized. Flash is an old protocol (not quite bad) but it's still used a lot on your everyday browsing. Newer HTML5, Java's, Silverlights, Quicktimes and others looks better, catches up faster, larger images, lesser artifacts and up to 30ips!

    Going back to standards, would be great if I had an old Wintel PC or a PowerPC mac with nowadays useless OS and could browse all the rich HTML going on... Will never happen :(

    Enough said, if Apple bets on newer technology, they should understand that a lot of interactive web media is still flash. To port this code into iPhone / iPad is quite easy. Come on Steve, talk to the Adobe guys, pay the license and let us enjoy free browsing, as it intended to be OPEN, FREE and for the rest of us...

    We've already got a couple threads discussing this. Don't need another.
