    A great app on the ipod touch would be flash palyer, then the ipod touch can unlock its true potential. I was wondering if this idea of having flash player on the ipod touch is ever possible. How about some opinions from you?

    I doubt it. The only way is if Adobe makes one, then Apple approves it. And it probably wouldn't be that great.

    Not again. Please people, stop with the Flash threads.

    The Hardware is not good enough for Flash to be properly rendered. Take a look at the PS3 doing Flash, then get back to me. Apple sells video and audio. And they don't want to lose that to other people.

    They have an App Store and they don't want lose money from that by allowing people to play little Flash games.

    Flash ad-banners are annoying and take up RAM and CPU. Check the hardware specs for the iPod Touch/iPhone and think about it.

    Apple's going to make sites adjust to them, some are already doing it. YouTube, Dailymotion, and several other sites are offering mobile streaming in QuickTime format. Apple's stalemate against flash is working and will only expand in the future. Be patient.

    Apple is going to re-create YouTube, Dailymotion, and other websites? Apple makes websites for people!?

    Its better for the device and more lucrative to Apple if they started streaming media that you purchase from the iTunes store.

    Just like what Netflix does.

    I guess I'll just have to be patient, I only want flash so I can watch videos online that aren't on YouTube like myspace videos.

    Or instead of flash they should make the ipod touch that allows it to view myspace videos or AOL videos
