The iPad and Flash

There's been a lot of discussion about the lack of Flash support on the upcoming iPad, and the impact on users' browsing experiences. There's a synopsis of the issue over at PC World, and many other blog posts and articles discussing the issue.

Over on the Flash Blog, they took a simpler, dare I even say Apple-like approach, and distilled the issue down to a graphic. As my friend Justin Thorp said over on Twitter, "Ouch."

Flash has become so integrated into the larger browsing user experience, the lack of support for it on a device intended to provide the ultimate browsing experience is painful. On a positive note, the conflict has at least reduced the jokes about the product name.
