And it may not be a good thing for you, but that doesn't make it a piece of crap. That is a silly statement to make about nearly ANYTHING, not just the iPad.

first, piece of crap FOR ME is an accurate statement...

second, it is enough of a chore that if I am on a local news site and an article has video and I have to download an app to view it, I will just skip it... MOST users would.

No Flash is a resource HOG, I freely admit that... any other "issues" are usually implentation issues that are beyond Flash's control (same problems will occur in HTML5)

btw, Flash 10.1 is much better but still very far from perfect.

Sorry, I missed the "for me" part of that post. My bad.

I agree that that would suck, and is a drawback, but I think that will not be a huge hindrance for most people.

what about Chiefs radio broadcast? JustinTV and other sites for when you can't catch them online? KcChiefs.com streams of press conferences?

when do you think those will catch up? I bet your IPad won't be able to do anything with them for at least 18 months... probably longer... by then it will be obsolete.

I played with one in Best Buy tonight. Seems like an OK toy, but I don't think I could personally get used to the touchpad keyboard for my "normal" internet usage. Not that we were really considering it as an option, but we went with an HP netbook instead.

FlyCast for radio. Well, my phone also does Chiefs radio broadcasts for free with Sprint NFL Mobile.

ESPN already has an app that includes video highlights and other content, although it costs $5 (boo). I'm sure it won't be long until the NFL and other places make apps that include game streaming. Netflix already has their application ready to go.

bad model. let's just go back to trading games on floppy on my old Apple IIc YAY!

beyond dumb to get a seperate app for every different site that I MAY at one time visit and want media from

Go download the latest "debugger" version of flash. I have been having problems w/ all things video since I "upgraded" to win7 and my gf, who has the same EXACT laptop, only newer w/ win7 preinstalled had none. I finally installed a new flash version(thanks to AustinChief for mentioning 10.1 earlier) and all seems well.

Give it a whirl and let me know if it help.

Set a time when you think 90% of the top sites (let's limit to top 100 sites and I am being generous here) have stopped using Flash...

Sometime in 2011? 2012? What quarter? (I won't even hold you to a month)

Until then, it is a HUGE issue... maybe for YOU it isn't, but MOST people enjoy watching a little streaming video at times without a seperate app or some hokey workaround.
CNN, ESPN, and other big names are already on board with HTML5...

Eh, not really. You only have to do it once, and then it's faster to access than going to the website.

I agree with some of Austinchiefs points but Silock is right in this case.

I was annoyed about having extra apps as well but it is essentially the same as having a favorite link saved in your browser. Only streamlined.

so, you'll have a kcchiefs.com app and a kcfx app, and a (etc etc) app? it's fine for youtube or pandora or even cnn... but it is NOT a sustainable model....

they are "on board" .. HELL everyone is "on board" but it's implementation that is key... and again... what about your local sites? I'll tell you what... come back to me in 12 months and tell me that NO site you want to go to is a problem and I'll eat crow... if NOT, then the Ipad is obsolete before the technology caught up with its limitations....

Wanna bet if there is a better piece of hardware out in 12 months than the "latest" Ipad?

Same thing with Iphone... from a tech standpoint, it is now on the trailing edge... in 3 months it will be FAR behind...

Kudos to Apple for pushing good tech, but I'm not willing to finance it just to feel "cool" with a Kindle on steroids... (btw, anyone who wants it because they want to use it as an ereader with more functionality... props... because that is exactly what it is... my buddy just wanted that and I agree that he got value for his purchase)

ONCE? once for how many damn sites? lets count... Pandora? Youtube? KCChiefs (if offered)? KCFX(if offered)? It adds up pretty damn quick. For me, it would require over 50 apps... that is just plain stupid.

No trying to get in on the argument here. Just saying, the apps work fine for me at this time. I don't waste any time on kcchiefs.com or kcfx anyway. heh

I get my Chiefs info here.
