    The iPhone is simply not a true internet machine without the use of flash

    while friends were browsing CNN.com using all the interactive maps.. i was stuck there, looking at still images and text

    Didn't Adobe say they were working on a flash app, and it was coming soon?

    Im sure i read that on the front page.

    I agree. All of the big media outlets had different trackers that would've been awesome on an iPhone, especially when they get the push system worked out. Part of the issue as well is also pushing endlessly for better battery life. That's the main issue holding back most of what separates the iPhone from laptops.

    I would also love to see some Silverlight development for the possibility of Netflix streaming. There would of course be battery issues, but iPod videos suck battery life like crazy as well.

    Apple is trying to kill off flash on the internet with its new submissions to the HTML standards committees. You'll have to buy another device if you want it.

    Very true… I was trying to get the latest election news during the night (UK time) and the lack of Flash on my iPhone just killed the experience.
