You aasume the content will get there... but frankly, it isn't available yet and may never be.

I didn't say it was good business... frankly, it's lazy business, just like Apple is conducting at the moment.

True on the 360... still think the article is silly...

The facts regarding its overall usability when the web has a ton of Flash and they refuse to support it.. instead banking on a technology that has yet to arrive in quantity (h.264 over html5) and may never arrive (html5 more likely to adopt WebM)

I agree 100% on polish. I am not a fan of Adobe.. BUT 10.1 is a vast improvement... still far from perfect though.

Meh, I think Androids biggest weakness is the UI.. it's just not as intuitive as it should be. This move should REALLY help them alot.
