Adobe Boos iPad’s Lack Of Flash Support

This image described by iPad, Apple, Flash, Ipud

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 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.
