    I would love to see flash but I am one of the few here supporting Apple's mistake to not include it. Here is my point: Flash is a 3rd party tool that many people use on the internet. The internet, the non watered down version, can still operate to a degree without it. Ultimatly there is a differance between the mobile watered down internet and what the iPhone is giving you.

    From what I can see, the iPhone still meets the qualifications.

    I don't like Flash. I can't think of a website I regularly visit that would be crippled without Flash.

    That said, I think the demographic Apple is targeting likes their flying menus and exploding type and 30-second Flash animations. So... it's probably a genuine mistake.

    As for "The Internet", it's one of those words that means pretty much anything nowadays. I'm sure there's a sysadmin somewhere who would disallow the term "Internet device" unless said device supported newsgroups and IRC.

    I got a friend like that ... he's also the type of person that will gut you if you say "an email". For example, "Sure Bob, I will shoot you an email about it tonight"

    *shrug* ... freaks :D
