Two weeks into the iPad and I’m still very impressed. The most glaring deficiency – and it’s a HUGE one – is the lack of Flash capability (no, not for taking pictures!). For a machine that’s touted for its web surfing capabilities, the lack of compatibility with Flash video is more than just a nuisance, it’s a monstrous deficiency and a testament to Steve Jobs’ absolute arrogance. I hadn’t realized just how much video there is on web sites – I guess you don’t notice until you can’t view it – but about a third of the sites I visit now have video elements to their content. If you have an iPad, you can forget about watching it. Absolute insanity driven by appalling hubris!
