It’s Official: No Flash on the iPad
- 4 Comment
One of my initial complaints about Apple’s upcoming iPad was its lack of Adobe Flash support (the iPhone is the same way and it drives me crazy). This past Friday, I was excited because of reports that said Apple’s website had information about the iPad that implied the new device would have Flash.
Unfortunately, this was too good to be true. Over the weekend, Apple updated its website and removed an image and a video that implied Flash support on the iPad. The photo showed a Flash-only image of a beach in Montenegro, but now shows an article about the 1,300th anniversary of Nara, Japan. The video showed a Flash-powered video player loading properly, but this has been amended. When Steve Jobs showed off the iPad on Wednesday, Flash did not load during his demonstration.
