They had PLENTY of time to include some version of it, but they wanted to wait for one that wouldn't suck so that people wouldn't return the thing needlessly.

Apple may have had a legitimate beef a few years ago... but right now they are just being bitches because Jobs has an agenda for HIS version of the web... even though his version of the web is still years away... how's that HTML5 prediction coming? Seems that things have changed VERY LITTLE since we had this argument almost a year ago...
Really? Looks like most of the top traffic sites have zero problem offering iOS compatible versions of their sites. I can go to just about any site I want and view it just fine on the iPad. Prediction is working out fine.

Fact is, Adobe has offered to develop 10.1 (soon 10.2) for Apple and Apple won't even LOOK at it.. this is well documented.
Look, I hope Apple allows 10.2 at some point. It looks like it's really good. I don't have ANYTHING against Flash or Adobe. I do want my shit to work like it's supposed to, though. I still have issues with Flash on my desktop (Win 7). I mainly use my iPad at school, and I really need it to have as long a battery life as it can. That wouldn't happen with Flash *right now*. I think it would be okay in the future with 10.2, though. Hopefully, I'll get to find out, because it looks like 10.2 is pretty dope.

You think I'm married to Apple and iOS or something, when that isn't the case at all. I'm looking for a new phone, and if the iPhone 5 isn't much of an upgrade, I'm staying with Sprint and getting an Android phone. I don't even use my Mac any longer. It's just a multimedia server at this point. Everything I do on an actual computer is done on my home built Win 7 machine. I'm far from a fanboy. I'm just not rabidly anti-Apple.
