Daring Fireball: "Talking about technical progress only serves to focus attention on the fact that it is Apple’s decision, and by all appearances, Apple does not want Flash on the iPhone. Even if Adobe eventually gets Flash running well — by any standard for “running well” — on actual iPhone hardware, rather than just in the iPhone simulator, they can’t ship it without Apple’s explicit permission." - I really don't think the iPhone needs to have Flash support. Apple has gone to great lengths to make sure the experience is what you'd expect from an Apple product. Like the decision not to allow background tasks, I'm OK with that as well. Why? Allowing applications to run in the background comes with its own price. I don't own one, yet, but that will be remedied July 11. I may not have one, but my wife will, and that's essentially like having one myself.
