Because while watching little 2 minute long clips on youtube is fine and good, there is a whole universe of video out there, and save for, again, Youtube, what major video hubs are there? Apple has a fleet of devices that claim to provide the best experience on the web, but cut out the video. They say Flash is this, flash is that, for any gamers out there, you know who they sound like? Silicone Knights, the guys who made that crappy Too Human game. They cried and whined about how the Unreal Engine was hampering them and yadda yadda yadda, yet for whatever reason, dozens of AAA games selling millions were being made. Flash may not be perfect, nothing is, but it's what the internet runs on in terms of the majority of multi media, and they need to provide SOMETHING. Some kind of alternative. How much longer are they gonna keep up this BS of having the internet in your hands? It's like giving you an HDTV and saying it's a huge improvement, but it's in black and white.
