    How much does it suck (or not suck) to not have flash on the iPad? Does it really matter? or is it still a deal breaker?

    To me it's not a huge deal ... until it is. Every now and then it get a "Doh!" moment when something won't load... but most of youtube has been converted... the issues are mainly with local news websites, etc...at least for me.

    Rarely have I needed flash. Not a factor in buying decision for me.

    To be perfectly honest, I don't really miss not having it. For the most part, there are third party browsers like; Skyfire that will allow me to view some flash content on those rare occasions that I really need to.

    Can't say it bothers me. I've never seen a portable device (tablet or phone) that's had good playback abilities. Would prefer it to have Silverlight ability. Coupled with HTML 5, I doubt flash would be needed.

    It isn't a deal breaker to me as I rarely go to sites that require Flash, but I guess it depends on your browsing habits.

    Ever since I have had an iOS device I have never even noticed that I don't ave flash. Quite irrelevant and a huge fuss these days

    I'm new to this site and I'm also new to Apple products with the exception I once owned a Iphone for a very short time. I recently purchased a IPAD2 knowing the IPAD2 had no flash. I decided to get the IPAD 2 because it's the best tablet out there, even though it doesn't have flash. However I honestly believe that for the price I paid for this tablet. it should have flash. I know the topic has been discussed numerous times and it's getting old. Again I've seen the whole Steve Jobs statement on why there's no flash but it should. Yes I could've gotten another tablet but hell nothing is as good as the IPAD. Give the customers what they want even if it's a dying format. Just my two cents....

    Personal preference. Not a big deal to me. If all the sites you visit use Flash then it may be a bigger deal to you. Why do you think polling others will answer this for you? You need to answer the question for yourself based on your needs/wants, not ours.

    Are you unable to test drive the sites you frequent on different tablets? I'd highly suggest doing so even if you think you need Flash. Like at least one other poster in this thread, I have yet to be impressed by Flash on any mobile device. Obviously, plenty of others find Flash useful. Again, subjective.

    However I honestly believe that for the price I paid for this tablet. it should have flash.
    That's why it's important to go beyond looking at the price tag. Never assume.

    If you watch porn it sucks if you don't then i don't think it's a problem.
    If you watch porn on your tablet but that's pretty much redundant and a bit too focused. "If the sites you frequent rely on Flash" covers all bases.

    It's not THAT big of a deal. Other companies blow it out of proportion in their ads, claiming their device is better because it has flash. Although it would be nice, it's definitely not a deal breaker. But I do think Apple needs to loosen the reigns a bit.
