    Sorry for the noobish question, I know ipod Touch doesnt support flash and was just wondering if i can view yahoo fantasy basketball sport pages on there. It has a little drag and drop function, not sure if thats considered flash or Java...
    Thanks!

    If it's Java, you will see a Java loading window where this drag and drop feature is. And for flash, right-click and see if it says Adobe Flash Player anywhere.
    Also, it's Javascript.

    it is completely compatible, except for the Sports Ticker function, which is flash.

    to check: use firefox, right click on an empty part of the page, hit "View Page Info". Then go to the Media tab, and scroll down, looking for .swf files and embedded files. Usually the embedded files are flash or java.
