    Default iPod/iPad OS 4.0 Announced

    So I see it was announced by Apple.

    Bottom line: We get multitasking and NO Flash.

    Oh well, maybe next time...

    Flash wouldnt be a smart move for apple because then lots of people would play lots of online games and buy alot less games off the store - it would hurt apple and not help them

    make no mistake, apple saying flash is too buggy to use is an excuse for the real reason: the ipad designed by them to consume media, media, they want you to pay for.

    having flash on the ipad would mean

    1) people could watch/listen to streaming movies and music without going through the "approved" methods.

    2) people could bypass the crazy developer rules set in place by apple (that includes a binding agreement not to talk about the rules) and make their own apps out of flash.
    We don't believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise-daftpunk

    lol! I'm all for flash. I don't know why people are against it. I have never had problems running it on mac or win os. Why would it be different on ipads/iPhones/iPods?

    I find it is a RAM whore, but on the CPU it is not that bad.
