    I'm getting it tomorrow. Though I'm contemplating whether to stand out in line tonight for it.

    Not worth waiting for the 5/4G

    It won't happen next year.

    It still amazes me how anyone would buy a phone that doesn't support flash even after years of Steve Jobs (R.I.P.) said flash was a dying technology. Reminds me of what they said about Apple years ago. I'm so glad I waited and got a Droid.

    Ok. But, why do I want Flash?

    Ok - a little off topic but I found a Flash emulator for the IPad called Puffin. You can find it in the apps store. Very cool. It's not 100% but definitely worthwhile in my opinion.

    Agreed. And why would anybody continue to develop Flash sites?

    I mean, nobody should really be surprised about the iPhone 4S announcement. If Apple did it with the 3G, then of course the iPhone 4 was bound to receive the same treatment. iPhone 4S, 4 Steve. RIP Steve Jobs. icon_sad.gif

    There's actually an article on Apple's website, the newsfeed I believe. It explains in GREAT detail why Apple's mobile devices will NEVER support flash. It's kind of in-depth, surprisingly.

    HTML5 > Flash. Deal with it.

    I take that back about Flash. It's the method for Youtube/Xtube type of material....that does bad things to traffic loads on the network.

    Might be why GayTube uses Apple's QuickTime.

    flash is broken, Apple's decision has forced thousands of popular website to stop abusing flash and that is a good thing. Flash is not ready for mobile, kills your battery and crashes your browser no time. Good option to have but it takes some big balls to ban it all together just like Apple did, and thanks to that the web is evolving to non proprietary standards.

    HTML > Flash is not entirely true. Flash performs much smoother than anything you can come up with HTML 5. However theres room for improvement and hopefully itll get there

    More options with technology especially since Flash is a major part of the web.

    Developers shouldn't have to program for mobile Safari in the same way they had to program for IE6 in the past in regard to web page development and design. I thought we were past that icon_sad.gif

    Users should have the choice and control as to what technology they use on their device.

    Bad for Apple's image in regard to the excuses it uses to justify it.

    I suspect that is the case. But, I'm confident the web will do what it has to do.

    Don't get me wrong. I like flash and Adobe. But, I believe Microsoft is motivated to close future browsers to all plugins for the sake of their own reputation as trojan-passing virus infested nightmares, like OutHouse. Or, LookOut.

    Mmm... That's not it. OutLook.

    yes but whatever is compatible with mobile safari is compatible with every other browser cross devices since a standard is being used unlike IE6 that was just a very....ugh how to put nicely..."particular" browser

    I oversee the creation and development of interactive graphics for my company's two news sites and, after spending bucket-loads of money and time training staff artists to perfect Flash, made the call six months ago to stop using it completely. Now using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and other tools. It had something to do with lack of Flash on so many mobile products, but in general I firmly believe that the interwebs will continue to move away from the use of Flash. It's a painful decision for the short-term, but it's the right one long-term.
