PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While most of us here on the OSNews team are proponents of HTML5, we're all fully aware that Flash serves an important role on the web today, and will most likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Flash has a rather spotty record when it comes to performance, and so far, hasn't been able to run well on mobile devices. It seems this is about to change, as an Adobe evangelist has showed off Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 (Froyo) running on the Nexus One. And eerlijk is eerlijk, it looks pretty darn impressive, especially considering how far they've come.

Joe and Joanne Lunchbucket will NEVER blame the software for these things, it will ALWAYS be the hardware, and therefore the company that makes the hardware.


So... Basic freedoms and age-old conventions (i.e., the device I buy is MINE, and if I want to shove it up my behind, I should be able to) should just be thrown out because Apple could possibly get complaints?

Of course, this also has to do with the downright retarded American justice system, with its massive damage suits and the likes. Maybe you guys ought to fix that instead of giving companies this much power. Fight the cause, not the symptoms.

If it was YOUR money and YOUR company you'd take the necessary steps to ensure that customer feedback is generally good.

And your argument reinforces what I said. If you decided to use it as an anal stimulator it would be outside of the specified functionality of the device so if you didn't get the results you were expecting they can rightfully say it was never designed for that, just like they can when people use them jailbroken. Not allowing Flash on there is Apple's way of saying "it wasn't designed for this", and there's no denying it also helps their bottom line, but it's their prerogative AND responsibility to their shareholders to ensure satisfaction levels amongst their TARGET MARKET remain high.
