Flash does not work on Ipad

Apple’s recently released iPad tablet does not support Adobe’s Flash technology, meaning that Flash-based videos (like those on Hulu.com) accessed in the iPad’s Web browser will not play. Companies like YouTube and Netflix have gotten around this issue by developing apps that play on the iPad, prompting Adobe to accuse Apple of ignoring Flash so it could make a few extra dollars via App Store purchases.

This will also affect the way web designers decide whether or not to use web based flash if ultimately other mobile devices will not be able to view them. What a bummer.
