I mean seriously, who's gonna buy it with no flash support. This is completely ridiculous. When I read this already after the announce, I couldn't believe it. And of course Steve Jobs didn't mention that, and actually lied when saying that his iPad was able to render the full content of any web page  ::)
 I know HTML5 is on the way but it's not done yet, and I haven't heard of any involvement from Adobe in HTML5. Lol as mentioned in the articles above, 75% of web videos are rendered using Adobe Flash Player. Linux has some sort of OSS replacement that works...sometimes, and Apple has nothing at all, yeah, QuickTime, and as one knows there aren't many sites sing the Apple format  ;D

A similar response from a celeb at youtube, too.  I know it’s over-used part from Downfall but...  ;D

I found btw Job's presentation completely pathetic...he was actually a bit embarassed himself having to repeat again and again: "what does it do better ??? hm...hmmm...browsing the web, watching photos, videos...write emails..." how interesting to alert the whole press and talk about things we've been doing for years, and avoid mentioning no flash support, 499$ but no 3G for that price, no integrated webcam, no usb port etc...and one last thing, the super-iPhone doesn't support telephony. If it's got an integrated mic to run Skype I'm not sure  ;D ...but hey who cares, it's a MAC  :D
