    I guess the other thing with Itunes is that it's completely melded itself into the mainstream public/advertising world. Case in point - I'm watching SNL, the musical guest just ended, and SNL pops up with a brief ad before the commercial saying "Download So-and-so's new album on Itunes now"... not Amazon, not wherever else.

    The reason I've always assumed apple doesn't have flash support is because the smoothness of it doesn't meet apples standards. However, I have saw some kind of flash running on a jailbroken iphone. How well it works I'm not sure though.

    Outstanding job on the thread, y'all. Very good points on both sides and staying respectful. Thank you all so much. I really am enjoying the conversation on here. Excellent examples being set here.

    And yes, fully encourage these threads when all of our members are acting as well as y'all are in here. I am truly impressed with the lack of flaming and slamming, just really good tech posts with opinions that are far from defensive or accusatory.

    Everyone here is to be commended.

    Im confident if allowed flash would make it run smoothly on iphone. Its not like Ipones are bad hardware... Its got the right stuff. Just needs the software which would definitely be optimized if the two companies would get along.

    I agree with this summation entirely.

    Celtic, this thread has actually been going very well, I have been watching it closely. I understand your point, but your tone might be considered off-putting. Please let it continue at the direction that it is. Everyone is bringing up great points.

    I deleted my post for that reason. After re-reading it didn't come off how I intended. Carry on.

    I'm in the same boat. I love Android but lack of top tier games, market supported movies, is what is enticing me to Apple....gonna have to get used to less interesting home screens, but the outstanding battery life is also a plus. Just got my incredible in Dec, might buy iphone 5 at full retail if I must...still deciding.
