Thing is, it's not just Apple that has problems with Flash. Chrome had (and still has) some issues with Flash, but Google, unlike Apple, is actually working with Adobe to fix it.

On a semi-related note.. I'd like to point out something I pointed out almost a year ago... Matias Duarte, the genius behind WebOS is responsible for the new direction Android is taking... I mistakenly assumed that we would see his influence in Gingerbread/Q4 2010 but apparently, he skipped that iteration and went straight to work on Honeycomb.

He admits that they are just getting started.. but they certainly are on the right track.

I fully expect Android to BURY iOS in almost every category of usability within a few more versions... (which Google plans to release in 6 month intervals and that is them slowing down to keep the hardware manufacturers from bitching)

Duarte is simply that badass.

Here is a good article about the future as he see it...

I'll agree with that. It's goofy.

I just don't get what it has to do with the "droid" brand. To me, it's confusing and dilutes their brand (and I'm speaking from a marketing perspective which is something apple excels at).

My boss is trying out the new Motorola Atrix. It is pretty slick and could really up the ante for mobile devices and tablets. If you haven't seen it check it out.

You can plug your phone in the back of a laptop\table type device and uses the phone for connection.

The downside right now it is only for AT&T IIRC.

I don't think it was ever meant to be as public a naming scheme as it has become.. those are goofy internal names that every company has...

It's pretty easy to follow the pattern...

(Apple Pie)
(Banana Bread)
Cupcake
Donut
Eclair
Froyo
Gingerbread
Honeycomb
Ice Cream

But again, I think they are just like iOS in OFFICAL names... 1.0, 1.1, 1.5, 1.6, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.0 etc

But when you have carriers, who care most about progressively locking users into contracts, and manufacturers like Samsung and HTC, who have never dealt with OS-style upgrades before, Apple starts to look good. Google has the Nexus S I suppose, but that's very different.

And I do think that will hurt Android over the long run. When Google has to rely on users buying new, very expensive phones to rollout their software upgrades, how can developers handle that? Look at Gingerbread: it's currently at 0.4%. Some companies are still releasing phones with 2.1!
I agree with this and I love Android. My company bought me a Samsung Captivate to test out back in October with the promise from AT&T that Froyo would be released that month.

Well 5 months later it looks like today is the day that it finally gets updated to Froyo. JFC.

I will never recommend anyone to buy a Samsung mobile device again after this debacle.

So what does everyone think about tablets a year later?

I thought they were pretty cool at first but I just can't seem to get too excited about them now. I don't really know what they are good for except if you want a bigger picture of an Iphone or Android phone.

I played with the Ipad to test for work and after about 5 minutes I was bored with it.

Maybe it just me though..

People I know with them keep telling me, "They're great for our kids." (and we're talking about preschoolers here).

Yeah that doesn't make much sense to me either.

And why the heck would I want my preschooler banging on my $500 tablet?

I don't have one yet (I'm in the market), but I assume drawing shapes/letters/numbers with their fingers and getting that instant feedback, on top of any app that provides challenges, etc. would be really cool for kids. My kids use a web based program called Study Island in elementary school, and I have an easier time getting them to do work there than homework on a piece of paper.

Bingo...my kids love playing with the iPad. They like to "color" with their finger, providing that instant feedback.

For my younger kids, there's an app that lets them drag jumbled letters to a matching "hole" to form a word. Stuff like DOG, CAT, etc. It was really cool to see my 2-year-old pick up the concept right away and start forming those words. I doubt I could have taught him how to use a mouse to click and drag the letters to the right "holes", but because he could simply use his fingers and get that instant feedback, he picked up the concept in a matter of seconds.
