Sure, but what I find more interesting is that Apple also ironically created the most promising open web app platform, which may eventually undermine the App Store itself. [...] The iPad is the first mainstream device which combines all of the following factors: reasonably powerful hardware, a (potentially) huge user base, a mature WebKit implementation, and constant 3G internet capabilities. All the dominoes are in place, and I think that the iPad will knock the first one down."

Perhaps I was not clear, article goes:

• iPad does not support Flash, likely never will.
• Current web sites and web developers will have change
• H.264 is a problem, despite HTML5 video being better than Flash
