Hardware, Embedded Systems Ah, NVIDIA's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang. This guy is usually to the point, and doesn't sugar-coat his words, so interviews with him are generally good stuff to read. This time around, he had Intel and Apple down his sights. The iPad's A4 processor doesn't measure up to his company's Tegra 2, and Intel's Z6 Moorestown is not competitive in any way. At least, that's what he claims.

"a number of websites which didn't work on the iPad because of its lack of Flash (like Farmville on Facebook)"

That would be an argument for the iPad.

Well, I certainly hate flash, but I don't really think that it's argument in favor of the iPad.

1. It's the website that's screwed up by using flash. That has nothing to do with the device.

2. As much as I hate flash, there are tons of people - especially more lay users - who practically rely on it (even if it's typically for stupid flash games). And a product which can't use a good chunk of the web definitely has a problem, even if it's because that portion of the web is screwed up. Most consumers will just be ticked that the product doesn't let them use those sites, rather than being irritated at those sites for using such an annoying technology.

Sorry, forgot the " :-P " qualifier...

I was actually making fun of Farmville!

Otherwise I agree that Apple could have integrated a Flash player and they probably only chose not to for business reasons rather than technical ones.
