Linux is just as robust as Unix is, actually in a lot of cases more so as it's development community overshadows that of a modern Unix OS such as Solaris or AIX. I'm still a huge fan of Unix though and still have a SGI workstation that I use for video editing and programming.
Flash isn't just for pretty moving sites, there are some pretty incredible and useful Web apps that use Flash. Check out audiotool.com/app it's a really good example of what can be accomplish with good Flash programming. I use it to create ambient sounds and beats for background filler.
How good is ClickToFlash, is it worth the purchase?
Apple makes most of their money from the iConsumer crowd, that being said though Apple still caters to the professional or did you miss the release of one one of the most powerful workstations available. Yes Apple has been dropping their professional apps one by one but that doesn't mean there aren't hundreds of other third party apps to take their place. Suggesting that Adobe drop support for a company that is basically their bread and butter for the sole reason of...
I still use flash, not by choice mind you there are just so many sites that still utilize it. One of favourite Web apps audiotool.com/app has promised that they will be going html5 for about two years now, which is unfortunate as I want nothing but to be able to run it on my iPad. Though Apple will probably have to increase the memory to at least 2Gb before I can use it properly as it's a bit of a memory hog.
I hope Apple game developers will start utilizing full 1080P out through the HDMI dangle. It would actually be pretty great to turn the iPad into a portable console. It's pretty cool to see my son using his little EVGA Note connected via the build in HDMI port playing games like Modern Combat 4 with a Bluetooth game controller.
The new L developers build adds an additional 2 hours to that number, increases battery by 36 percent. It's still in development but so far the build has been extremely stable.
Crapware? The Nexus and Google Play phones are the only Android phones without the addition of unnecessary software. The HTC One comes loaded to the gills with the crap. I will only buy an Android device if it has Nexus written across the back, third party developers have done nothing but destroy the Android platform, specifically Samsung and HTC. Sense is one of the worst skins I have ever used, not as bad as TouchWiz but pretty darn close. If I was to buy an HTC One M8,...
Oh most defiantly and I in no way did I  run this test very scientifically, just loaded three movies and pushed play. I just wanted to point out that Android isn't as inefficient as the poster I was commenting too was trying to imply. By the way the Nexus 5 is only 10 grams heavier then the iPhone 5s, that's about half the weight of a tooth brush so it's not much. Dimensions are also not so dramatically apart, 137.84 x 69.17 x 8.59 mm vs. 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm.
Though I don't share your sentiment since Google doesn't control the hardware and software. Even though there are many examples of hobbled messes when a pure Android build is used from Google without any outside modifications from third party developers and paired with a solid hardware infrastructure the experience can be quite enjoyable. Android has done a lot of growing up over the years and the latest version, "L" is quite fantastic, regardless of your biased feelings...
