Adobe Criticizes Apple For Lack Of Flash On iPad Tablet Device
Everyone is talking about Apple's launch of their new iPad this week and Adobe has decided to share their criticisms of the new Apple tablet device. During the iPad launch event this week, there was an embarrassing moment during the iPad demo in which some items on the New York Times website did not appear on the iPad display. Apple has never used Adobe Flash on any of its devices, and the iPad is no exception.
lash has never been supported on devices with the iPhone OS, mainly because of Apple concerns that it could rapidly drain battery life. In rejecting any version of the technology, Adobe suggests that Apple is preventing people from accessing "70 percent of games," as well as "75 percent of video." Sites such as Hulu, ESPN and JibJab are crippled on an iPad.
Reviews of the iPad have been surfacing this week and tech experts are weighing in on the pros, and many cons of the iPad. Adobe has voiced their opinions on the new Apple tablet device, especially with regards to the blatant lack of Flash. Adobe claims that the iPad's standards support is inadequate.
Adobe has pointed out that 70% of games on the web and 75% of video uses Flash. While the new iPad claims to allow web browsing at its full potential, it's hard to ignore the fact the Apple is continuing to create devices that do not support the Flash platform.
