No one disagrees... but to deny that the majority of sites out there still use Flash and that not having the ability to play it isn't at least somewhat limiting.. is unrealistic at best.. a flat out LIE at worst.

Flash is dying... but it's dying a long slow protracted death. I made this argument SIX months ago and very little has changed... yes slightly more sites are off Flash video and on html5 (some WebM, some h.264) but overall the changes are so small as to be imperceptible.

Flash WILL die eventually... anyone want to make bets on when? I'll take the over on 12 months if anyone want to bet me?

In the meantime, who wants to own a device that isn't nearly useful enough (for me at least) until that day arrives? I am willing to wait for better devices that actually fit the market instead of a device that tries (unsuccessfully) to change the market.
