And as for principle, isn't apple allowed to choose what runs best on its device? Or do they have to allow substandard rubbish on their stuff just because you say so. Since when has communism taken over the IT world?
As for restrictions, how about the proprietary nature of flash. You have to buy, then use THEIR tools to code and it can only be played on THEIR player, isn't that restrictive? That's closed. ios is closed, flash is closed. You say apple should be forced to allow open coding without restrictions ("as it SHOULD be") on their os when adobe don't allow open coding for flash? WTF? Bit one sided! "SHOULD"n't adobe allow it's tools to be open and without restrictions TOO? Why haven't I been allowed something other than flash player to play embedded web content on my browser for years then????? You can't demand for one platform to be cracked opened while standing behind a closed system. Hypocritical don't you think?
After reading your posts it's quite clear your love of flash over the iphone, so why not get a phone with flash then?
As your argument bites the dust and you choose to focus on flawed, biased principles, you still can't overlook the failure of flash on mobile devices, it's power draining and cpu hogging incompetence and its unresolved security risks that have plagued it for years. I'm sorry you can't get over it, but it ain't gonna happen so move along or get another device that will allow you to play your little flash games. You have a choice you know! Something we haven't had with embedded web content for years with the total flash dominance,........ until now. Bye bye flash.

Who would not want to have the option of use flash? Yes it may not work well, but there is a time when you wish you can use it maybe it was an emergency. I know I had an emergency and I need to find the address, but the website using flash I can not even get out of opening screen for other options to search. Freaking had to call someone to get on the website to find the address for me, I know I wished I had it then.
And to the people who keep bringing up html5 and all this other software that works better than flash. How many websites is using it right now? I would love to do this option can you give me a date when this is going to happen? Since you say flash is going to be a memory hog + wears down battery and such, what is there to guarantee that html5 and all these other options do not do the same? Most importantly where is it on my iPhone???
I know Adobe will release something for iPhone right when Jobs gives the nod, I would not be able to say the same for the "other options".

Why is the response always 'You have a choice!!' when someone presents a logical and rational reason for supporting flash?
I know why .... they're mesmerized by the Apple spin-machine and can't see the forest for the trees (Hahaha
