More Fun with the iPad (abusing it, not using it)

The technopundits spent months (years) hot under the collar waiting for the dawn of the iPad. And now that it’s here it’s caused a dizzying deluge of excitement commingled with bewildered disappointment and acrid bemusement. I’m gonna go ahead and jump on that last one. Never been a big Kool Aid drinker.

Adolf makes a great point I forgot to bring up in my earlier post: No Flash support. No Flash support?! How’s ol’ Jobsie going to make an essentially dedicated web-surfing device that doesn’t support Flash? It’s baffling.

  2. I have wondered if apple.com requires flash. Embarrassingly (or not embarrassingly) I don’t know how to find out. Yes, I have already googled for “does apple.com require flash support?”.

    • Awesome question, Terry. Upon a very brief, cursory inspection it does not appear that Apple’s site uses Flash. But, gosh, it would be hilarious wouldn’t it?

  3. no review of the bloated eric clapton shilling for t-mobile. oh look, its buddy guy calling, i wonder if any other irrelevant people will call.
