    As someone previously pointed out- there are not many machines that DO come with flash preinstalled.

    So messany serves us up this "news"....

    I'm not saying you're a bad writer messany. And by all means I'm very excited for you not to have included a verizon rumor in here some way. But this is most definitely NOT news by any means....

    It's a horrible excuse. If the plugin is installed out of the box, it doesn't matter if it's out of date. If it needs updated, your browser will let you know as soon as you visit a Flash enabled website, and you will have to download and install the latest version. Even if Windows computers don't come with the Flash plugin pre-installed, the various manufacturers don't make a point to claim "better for the end user". This is just a "nice" public way of Jobs putting the hate down on Flash. As if it's not already a known effin fact.

    I would agree

    To a few previous statements made on here.

    Flash IS kind of a big deal. Go to or design a website...that's all that needs to be said.

    If people want to see better performance of Adobe products on mac computers, they need to look at the all too commonly mentioned death grip of apple and their "protecting" our enjoyment of their products. Fueding with Adobe. But then again we all know the story and it's more of the same old blah blah blah.

    And no it's not that big of a deal that Flash isn't coming pre-installed. Yes it is more of a statement than it would be coming from PC based companies because of apples situation with Adobe, but honestly if it's installable then mac users should be competent enough to install it themselves. That is of course assuming that they are actually as competent as a select few seem necessary to constantly boast about.

    I'm personally a mostly "PC" user, and now days the line is primarily only drawn by software/os. I get tired of misinformed arguments as well as the marketing ploys, well actually more so the people who latch on to mac commercials and spout off about them.

    So in conclusion is it notable news? Yes. Does it really make a difference in the end. Not really. At least for once they're not spoon feeding you.

    Have a nice day "PC" and mac alike.

    This is a lame attempt by Apple to see Flash go by the wayside. They are hoping people will find it too inconvienent to point and click to install flash, but the first webpage that the user goes to that requires flash will change that Adobe is not going away much to the dismay of Emperor Jobs.
