If we had good mobile web browsing, which has always been a primary quest of mobile computing for the last decade, the only apps we'd see or need would be true productivity apps (and they'd just be called...*shocker*...'software').
    Wasn't that Apple's intention with the first iPhone? They created a device that was capable of bringing the full web experience via a smartphone and were initially against the idea of supporting third party native applications. It was the consumers/developers that pushed them into creating a native app store.

    no. They created a device that wasn't capable of bringing a full web experience via a smartphone...that's why consumers & developers clamored for apps on an otherwise extremely popular device.

    And how exactly was/is it not capable?

    flash and there can be troubles with misc coding. Look, this isn't bashing apple. This is fact. If mobile web browsing was equal to browsing from your pc, people wouldn't clamor for bank apps, and games, etc. You'd just go to your bank's online webportal and do your banking like that. For gaming on par with what you get from apps, you could just go to one of the zillion free flash game sites. Apple 'solved' this problem with the app store and an accessible development environment....but thereby further fractionalizing the mobile user experience.

    the good news is that mobile devices and web coding are starting to converge. Largely because the market is strongly moving to mobile devices and the web has to evolve, just as these things evolve.

    Flash is the worst thing happened to the web.
    HTML5∞ will sort out this.

    What if when 2.1 is released, hackers try to enable flash on the phone. I mean since 2.x is required, that means the pixi can run flash but it's just "weaker".

    The Pixi will not be able to run Flash.

    There might be a hack to get Flash working on an overclocked Pixi, but a stock one will not see working Flash.

    webOS will default to a FlashBlock-style implementation, so hacks (or even a generally slow-natured Flash experience) wouldn't be possible unless you clicked on the Flash element.

    But it did happen so we need support for it regardless of how anyone feels about it.

    Nah. The less it's adopted the less it is used. Browsing on an iPad will quickly show how much of the web has adopted non-flash.

    Maybe, maybe not. There have been several times people tried to discuss other ways of getting flash on a Pre, and it was largely shot down because we'd been promised it was coming.

    Now that HP has decided keeping their explicit promises to their most loyal and enthusiastic customers isn't worth doing, it may be time to revisit some of those ideas.

    I have it but have yet to install it. Since we really should not be spreading or asking for illegal software here I can't post it, neither should mikevillain.

    But I will say there is a thread still existing with the FTP url on it and since I am not a moderator there is not much I can do about it... oh well...

    Curious what made you switch back... not to derail the thread or anything. You can PM me if you'd care to answer.
