Internet & Networking It annoys me that Flash is required for most video sites. Especially when Flash isn't available on a lot of devices or at least not the latest, required version. Whenever I try to use my Internet Tablet to watch shows on sites like Hulu, Veoh, Crackle, Joost, etc., I can't, because they require a newer version of Flash, and I'm stuck with what I have. Thankfully not every site uses the latest version. At least not yet anyways.

We're talking a 330mhz ARM6, a mediocre 220mhz C55 dsp, a powerVR GPU less powerful than a Voodoo 2, and 128 MEGS of RAM...

You don't see me bitching that my 600mhz Athlon from 1999 can't handle modern flash content!

GAH - what the HELL?!?
I doubt one could directly compare clocks of a modern mobile chip that probably supports h.264 hardware acceleration against a desktop chip from a decade ago as a means to estimate relative performance.
