    Flash will never come to the iPhoen or iPod touch. If it did, it would lag a lot.

    Good find... maybe it will come, but it probably won't. I am more interested in the ad manipulation.

    Lol, this is interesting, but I don't see why they would manipulate a webpage to avoid showing that the iPad doesn't support flash. They could've just visited another page with no flash lol.

    It's possible that the iPad does indeed have Flash, and that the plugin just wasn't activated or wasn't in the demo unit Steve had.

    I still don't care about Flash even if it has it, and I'd want the option to turn it off if it did have it (to save battery life). It'd shut up a lot of people if it had it though, so that may be nice.

    I don't see why Adobe can confirm information about Apple products now

    Also, I think their press release was WAY too self-congratulatory. 75% of the videos on the web are Flash, huh? So Youtube (iPad/iPhone versions are non-flash) and other non-flash options only has 25% of the available video? Soon Vimeo too with their HTML5 player. I find that hard to believe, considering I never go to a Flash video site as it stands.

    my guess is that it will not have flash support. the page they showed probably had something embedded in a different format (something with quicktime perhaps?).
