Those iPhone adverts p|ss me off! They are adverts like phones have never done thiss**t before. Example... whilst your call is on hold, you can surf, check emails, play a game.. f**k off! Jobs really does aim for the dipshits in the world eh? yea the more money than sense folks who think all thiss**t has just happened and never been done before. It's f**kin insulting!
Ive always said the same, apple aims at the kind of person who buys a Jellyfish but knows f**k all about computers, but hey, Ive got a £10,000 PC, the kind of person who buys an Ipod instead of a zen because its an Ipod - because its got a stupid but 'trendy' name it must be good.
I mean for f**k sake, property developers have been calling new apartments aimed at young people Ipads to try and get into this trend. Wont be long and theyll be creating a new Ipod touch aimed at young children with easy access to barny and the tellytubbies.... better shy away from the name "I touch kids" though that could really get them in the s**t

I'm so sick of people bragging and showing off their stupid iPhones...The Milestone rapes an iPhone, yet people have NO idea what it is, it's just sad. I try to lure all my friends and family away from anything Apple. I just wish they would go out of business, no joke.
Sorry, but, Jobs is pretty much right. Why sue flash on the iphone? Read his posted letter and he brings up well enough valid points to not use it.
It's fair enough to say "Apple Sucks", but he really has a good argument. HTML5, Java etc pretty much rule out any reason to use flash. Flash like he says, uses the rollover effect made for mice and flash, is sorta getting outdated. H.264 is better, a lot better, and most important is this:
We have routinely asked Adobe to show us Flash performing well on a mobile device, any mobile device, for a few years now. We have never seen it. Adobe publicly said that Flash would ship on a smartphone in early 2009, then the second half of 2009, then the first half of 2010, and now they say the second half of 2010. We think it will eventually ship, but we’re glad we didn’t hold our breath. Who knows how it will perform?
if you owned a business and a company wanted to integrate its product into yours but couldn't show you any actual performance/use stats, then would you use it? of course not.
And as Meats pointed out, battery life.
TBH, he is mostly right about Flash. The iphone and ipad simply don't need it.
I was under the impression Apple did something proprietary to get youtube working on the iPhone/iPad? Or am I confusing that with something else? Because it'll be interesting to see what happens - if that is the case - when HTML 5 hits.
But besides that point, someone needs to shove Steve's nose into the grindstone.
