I see you completely lost your ability to respond. Rather than reply with fact or counterargument, you took the classic All Lose Technique to it's normal conclusion: Say the other guy is wrong and try to gloat.

Why do so many resort to this form of stupidity? My gawd, use your brain for something other than saying you won some point when you won't even debate it. You really think ANYONE believes it?

I'd laugh, but this unfortunately is the current state of the Internet.


I'm still standing on this.

If Flash is a "CPU hog" as he claims, perhaps he should have used a better CPU...NVidia Tegra 2, for example.

Steve is the problem, not the solution. Steve lied. He promised "all the internet" with the iPhone. Without Flash you simply can not access "all the internet". Having lied about that, what makes you think he is not lying now?

Almost anyone could have specified a better bit of hardware for the iPad than Steve did. Sadly, there is no one at Apple who can or will tell him that he is out of touch with reality and the market.

Take your one-sided poor assessments and circular file them. Start over and get the concept right before you try again. Big picture requires assessment of the Triangle of Death tradeoffs.

1) raw performance

2) power available

3) size & weight

The Law of the Triangle of Death says you can pick any two. The cost to optimize all three corners will ALWAYS be out of economical reach, but will always be reachable in a theoretical unconstrained environment.

Until somebody ships something that outperforms the iPad by at least 2x with reasonable size and weight and at the same or better price points, saying it should have ______ or it is yesterday's tech is just hot air.

Hiro,

You are so obviously wrong and plainly just an apologist that your comments do not warrant further comment. Enjoy your own little reality.

You can, however, set my posts to ignore. I invite you to do so.

Flash is not the Boy Scout of functionality. It is bad for Mac and Windows and if you only want a 1 hour battery for the iPad, it's also bad on portables. Flash Lite is a joke.

At least my reality contains reality! Your continued vapor-filled responses are long on bile and short on substance. In the famed words of an old lady:
