    Don't want flash, don't need flash. If a site has flash I just look elsewhere. I don't want the damned ads anyway:D

    Why not?
    It doesn't hurt to see 75% of the internets web content from the freedom of your iPhone or iPad, does it?

    If I had a choice to use flash or not, I'd choose not.

    Oh, the irony... :D

    Was the name of this new tech intentionally ironic?

    ;)
    Remember Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen's comments regarding Steve Jobs' open letter on Flash? —

    Glad to see all this discussion around Flash resulting in research and innovation.

    I'm sure if Steve Jobs were in favor of Flash on iPad and iPhone almost all of the people saying that they don't want flash on this thread would also be in favor of it. Just goes to show you how people tend to dislike and not want something that they know they will never get. :rolleyes:

    True, I wouldn't either...
    but since these flash-only websites don't give me that choice, I'd like to have the flash capability.

    ...don't care what anyone says, this non-flash decision hurts apple consumers more than helps them, especially at this point.

    Initially, I hoped apple's decision forced sites like hulu to get onto the html5 bandwagon, and all of us wouldnt be inconvenienced by this whole ordeal... but unfortunately it doesn't look this way, and people are going to increasingly become bitter about apples block.
