It's no secret that the control freaks at Apple have no love for the Flash programming platform, as its wild-'n'-wooly style clashes with the House of Jobs' weld-the-hood-shut approach.
So when the iPad was introduced as "[providing] the ultimate browsing experience," Lee Brimelow at The Flash Blog saw red, and posted screen shots of many Flash-powered sites that would be unusable on the new McTablet. From Hulu to Facebook games to CNN to…hey, what was that removed screen shot?
(Er…it was an adult web site. A lot of Brimelow's readers weren't happy to see it, even in a highly censored form. If you're open-minded, Gizmodo has the original screen shot…)
Look, some of us here at iSmashPhone.com are no great fans of Flash. Yes, we may see a lot of blue Legos on our iDevices (and other non-Flash-enabled handheld platforms), but maybe that will spur site developers to create Flashless, HTML5-rich websites in return.
