    That is why Apple won't give us flash. Finally someone says it though.

    I read this when I came home.

    I applauded.

    That is all.

    I completely agree. There is noy really any point of having flash on a device like this. It is completely illogical

    This must be one of the first times that Apple has spoken out on something as 'controversial' as this.

    I agree with them. I would rather have a website load in 5 seconds than in 20 with Flash that works at 10FPS..

    he's contradicting himself. he says flash is 100% proprietary. it's not "open". steve should be the last person on earth to be saying THAT.

    im very impressed with Jobs, it takes a grand amount of nerve (the perfect amount), courage and bravery to post such a letter to the public
