    I want it for the Droid, of course, but I want it for IE 64bit just as badly.

    Point is it is only a handful of sites. Not to mention that HTML5 won't be a standard for a few years to come. In the meantime all the other Flash enables sites will be crippled on the iPhad devices while Android will enjoy the full experience. Also with Adobe CS5 and Adobe AIR there will be ALOT of apps coming to Android due to ease of development. It's a beautiful thing. :icon_ banana:

    Perhaps this is the reason why, or related to the reason why Apple doesn't want Flash for the iPhone or iPad
    Apple's next big thing? Video, analyst says - Computerworld

    Not entirely sure where they are going with this, but a huge datacenter such as they are building could serve many purposes.

    Point is, it's only a handful of sites a few weeks after the release. The iPad is going to push along HTML5 believe me. 700k sold in the first week or so is a large customer base many websites are going to be missing out on if they don't switch or at least make it an option.

    When is Flash coming out for the Droid?

    One could only hope. One more Apple walled garden strewn with DRM to be locked into. The more and more they do this the more people research and run away. I don't think Uncle Steve gets it yet. People don't like to be handheld and coddled. We like freedom and options which Apple is taking away more and more of every day and with every new hardware/software release.

    They have sold over 20 million iPhones easily (they sold 5.4 million in just one quarter last year), not to mention iPods, iPod Touches, and about a million iPads in the first month.

    So I think the market tends to disagree with your statement that people run away.

    The iPhad devices will push nothing as far as HTML5 is concerned. It will be YEARS before it becomes a standard and sites that are media rich start migrating to it. 700k in the first few weeks and the sales have dropped off a cliff afterwards. The initial sales spike was early adopters. Now that the "must have" crew grabbed their precious iPod Touch XL its' sales have slowed tremendously. Apple is good at one thing and that is marketing its' products as magical and revolutionary and the mouth breathing, toe walking morons buy into it. Those that have the slightest bit of common sense and read reviews and research prior to making a purchase see that it is smoke and mirrors and buy another, more competent and feature complete product.

    More and more people, including existing Apple customers are seeing Apple for what it is. This is one of the reasons that iPhad devices are beginning to lose share to Android and soon WP7 devices as well. Once the tablet market gets hit with Android tablets you will see another big loss for Apple as well. It's only a matter of time before Apple's iEmpire crumbles.
