Apple iPad Will Not Read Flash

Posted on January 31, 2010

iPad SmallApple's iPad promises an amazing web surfing experience but there is a major downside that makes the surfing experience less amazing: no Flash. Flash is used for many videos on the Internet. Many games also use Flash. The lack of Flash is especially frustrating considering the device was billed as a web surfing and entertainment device. Apple even claims the iPad is the "best way to experience the web, email, photos and video. Hands down." But it isn't a good experience at all if you can't experience something because Apple forbids you. The real reason Apple does not want to use Flash might be because they want to force iPad owners to buy movies and games from the iTunes stores.
