    Default iPad

    I'd love to buy one but I just can't get over the fact that it doesn't support Flash Player. There is just so much of it on the internet these days, what'd be the point buying a device that doesn't support it ?

    There are two apps that get around that skyfire and iswifter. Skyfire converts video to HTML 5 and iswifter does all the flash stuff on servers and then send it to you so it's like using computer but can be a little glitchy depending on your connection.

    Got one as a present (but would never spend money for it) - great toy - and youtube is working on it - so up to now I don't miss flash

    Unless Flash starts evolving it will die a slow death. Not only because of iPads and iPhones, but also because all will be supported natively in html 5 and because quite frankly, Flash is crap. The players are memory hogs, quite slow and very crash prone. All this is much better in html 5 already.
    Empty vessels makes the most noise.

    200+ not out.

    I have one at present and I don't need flash for anything I do.. I wouldn't be without my iPad. It's easy to carry and easy to work on..
    By all mean's go ahead and close doors behind you but don't lock them..

    Frequently when browsing these boards on iPhone I find things in threads can be missing, like pictures or videos. Does the same issue exist on iPad ?
