IPAD

Beside picking a name that left itself open to terrible jokes Apple has chosen not to support Flash on their new IPAD.

Very strange to develop a device that will display "holes" in webpages.

I don't understand that plus it does not have a USB port nor a webcam (no video Skyping). I guess they don't want you to download your own content via a flash drive.

I understand that several sites will be using HTML5 so that you could view videos where normally you would view via Flash, which supposedly slows the process. However, right now you would not be able to view videos from Hulu and YouTube. I think it's just Apple's way of controlling content and forcing you to go through iTunes.

In a perfect world, I wish they supported open content and you could pick your carrier, rather than being forced to go through AT&T. Ironically, Apple has become the big gorilla in the room, and even though I love their products, backlash could be coming.

I just think it is an awkward size. My blackberry sits on my belt, my laptop has a carrying case for serious biz....this thing just looks too big for 24 hr use, and not robust enough for laptop level work.

I think it is the I-edsel.
