My logic is perfectly sound. Apple decided not to support Flash on iOS devices for several reasons and were quickly proven right to the point that Adobe took it behind the barn and put one behind it's ear.

Here is a link regarding an open letter Steve Jobs released explaining his stance on not supporting mobile Flash on iOS.

Those 2 parts of your statement make what you are saying complete bull shite.


I ordered the iPad 1 on the first day it was available for order. I don't know what to tell you. I just never noticed for the most part that I didn't have Flash even from the start except for a few instances like I mentioned, even early on.

usually scoop knows his shite about tech, but looks like he as well has bought in to the Apple marketing.

I liked the SmartGlass presentation recently at E3. I'd be intrigued by more "second screen" announcements even though I'm not in the market for a new tablet.

The strongest rumors earlier today seemed to involve some kind of partnership with Barnes & Noble on some sort of tablet but I think B&N put the kibosh on those rumors in the last several hours.

As big a deal as Microsoft has let this get and the way they've stoked the hype, I think it"s gotta be a completely in house made Windows 8 tablet which would be kind of a big deal.

Everyone keeps waiting on the first true iPad competitor and no one has been able to do it. Microsoft actually building the hardware AND software for a new tablet will be pretty damn interesting.

I believe it's an in house product as well, but it may actually not be running Windows 8.

For example, something like this on a ~9" display...

I'll give you that one for sure.


Problem is you can't be the same or near the same price as the ipad. You NEED to be significantly less expensive or people will just buy the ipad

You are an apple sheep if you think no one has been able to make a tablet to compete with the iPad. Transformer Prime for one. That's all I will say. I'm not gonna argue with you about it, just gonna say you are blind to reality.
