Apple released the i.Pad four months ago... and it still doesn't have a real competitor.

As someone who uses this thing daily. I've put a bunch of mp4 training videos... PDFs PPTs... Mp3s... soo much learning shit.

And the games are so fun. My children play these amazing learning games and really loving the process of learning.

The iP.ad makes learning fun for the kids.

Man, the Netflix app... the tool is just an amazing piece of technology. I'm not even an Apple guy, per se. The first Apple thing I ever purchased was the iPod touch... then my youngest lost it somewhere...

But, yeah, the iPa.d could have been better... it could have the front facing camera... but, it doesn't... they have that mantra... Don't worry, be crappy... you may not be perfect yet... but eventually it will get there. And you get first mover advantage.

Apple better wise up. Android is gaining on them. I'm glad that they opened app development up to flash, finally.

But, all of the disrespect for the .i.P.a.d. is senseles, IMO. Its a ****ing kick ass tool. The battery lasts forever. You hear no fans. It never crashes. It never gets hot or even really that warm. The thing is sofaking badass, it's ridiculous. But you only experience that awesomeness, when you deal with one daily.

I will stand by my earlier statements, which so far have been pretty spot on... but we'll have to see once Gingerbread comes out. If it has the functionality in its UI that WebOS (palm pre) had.. it will be a clearcut winner... but that is speculation that we'll have to wait a few more months on.

As for Flash on Android.. the only disadvantage I have seen is that legacy apps weren't BUILT for mobile and therefore can have clunky interfaces.. otherwise I have yet to have a performance issue... of course I am using the latest hardware over a 4G or wifi connection... I won't vouch for trying to shove Flash on older/slower hardware.
Three thoughts:

1) No one says app-per-site is the only alternative. Many websites accessible thru mobile safari support flash alternatives.

2) You are definitely hyping some vaporware, in that you're speculating the UI designer of the Pre will singlehandedly unify Google's Android. Evidence not yet seen.

3) If you always have to use the latest hardware, mobile flash isn't going to adopt.

Android 2.2 now up to 28.7%, and 2.* over 70%. That's quick progress from the previous numbers Silock posted.

It really doesn't.

It will be interesting to see some usage statistics on this app, as well as Adobe's Flash-conversion utility.

There is no way I will pay for any app just to have flash video.

iPad users are a bunch of spazzos. I've never seen a group of people get more excited about getting access to a free application in my life. And one they've spent the last few months arguing means shit.

And, you have to pay for it. What a joke...

Huh?

I just said it was interesting. I don't have it, and can't foresee getting it in the future. I already have the justin.tv app, which is more than adequate for streaming sports.

EDIT: However, if someone does find that they cannot live without it, $2.99 is hardly a dealbreaker.

Buh bye h.264...

I can easily see youTube being the next to pull it...

WebM still has some major room for improvement... but it looks like the push AWAY from h.264 is finally underway.

From a related article...

Quote:
The confusion created by these competing standards is surely great news for Adobe, whose Flash Player plug-in is the most popular way of delivering video on the internet. The plug-in already supports H.264 encoded video and VP8 support is on its way. If the deadlock persists, as is most likely, support for both these rival codecs will guarantee Flash’s popularity long into the future.

Here's an interesting take from a guy known as "Znu" on Slashdot:

Quote:
This serves two strategic purposes for Google. First, it advances a codec that’s de facto controlled by Google at the expense of a codec that is a legitimate open standard controlled by a multi-vendor governance process managed by reputable international standards bodies. (“Open source” != “open standard”.) And second, it will slow the transition to HTML5 and away from Flash by creating more confusion about which codec to use for HTML5 video, which benefits Google by hurting Apple (since Apple doesn’t want to support Flash), but also sucks for users.
