Everyone knows this, or Mac users know this? A lot of people seem to forget that Flash doesn't have issues in Windows like it does in OSX, and the reason for that is Microsoft worked with Adobe to make that happen. Now google is working with them, and they are making progress.
I really don't know why the reviewer wouldn't be honest about hitting the home button, and if you're trying to show flash in the browser and you hit the home button on the tablet by accident (we can't see where they placed the home button) then yes, a big "Woops!" is appropriate lol.
Besides ALL of that, when an app crashes in Android you get a notification. That alone makes it so that it doesn't matter if we can see whether or not he hit the home button, because clearly we can see Android not giving this crash notification.

Pardon me if I wait until it's something real rather than vaporware.
Actually, the progress in 2.2 and Flash is as available as OS 4 and multitasking is. Surely you believe Apple when they say iPhone OS v4 will bring some level of multitasking, right? You've seen the videos of it working haven't you? Same exact situation here with Flash.
I'm not gonna argue over when it'll get to us, but clearly they are making tremendous progress, and if they can get it working the way they promise, it'll be a major slap in the face to Steve Jobs and his credibility.
My opinion on it is simple: People can't bash Apple for not having flash since no device has it, but at the very same time, Apple fans and Steve Jobs can't bash mobile flash because obviously they don't have it, so their opinions are as "vapor" as the software
