Apple iPad Promotional Material Updated to Remove Flash Content, Adobe iPad Porn Fail Removed from TheFlashBlog

And 9to5mac finally puts to bed the does-iPad-support-Flash flood they kicked off yesterday by noting Apple and their advertising agency have updated promotional videos and images on Apple.com to properly reflect the lack of Adobe Flash support on the iPad, including the blue lego bricks of plugin fail we iPhone users are so used to.

As we were told by our source at the secretive organization, Apple came crashing down on them with urgent requests to change the video.

In other no-Flash-on-the-iPad news, TheFlashBlog has removed the lone porn fail image from their condemnation graphic, while Merlin Mann at Kung Fu Grippe points out that if the graphic had been in Flash rather than a JPG, no iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch owner would have seen it anyway... (Or would they, as Gruber updates to pass on that the site in question has an iPhone version that replaces the Flash with QuickTime. D'oh!)

Thus ends the latest flare up in the never ending Flash on iPhone OS sega. Right?

This is so lame, I'm so sick and tired of it! GET REAL, PEOPLE! You DO watch porn on the Internets :)

Wait a minute, instead of replacing all the Flash sites with Flash-less sites in all the photos and videos, they chose to simply show the blue bricks? Is that right? If so, what game is Apple playing here? I wonder if they're taking the gamble of showing everything and hoping the public comes away with the impression that Adobe and "proprietary" web sites are the villain instead of Apple. I think if was Gruber saying that at some point, if enough sites decide to go Flashless, you reach a tipping point and he whole Flash house of cards crumbles. I wonder if Apple has decided it's time to force that showdown...to the death.

Jobs' statements against Adobe Flash have Zero credibility. He acts like the iPhone/Safari NEVER CRASH or the Apps in the App Store NEVER CRASH! What a load of BS!!!! No Flash = No Fun ! Plus no multitasking?? These are BASIC features in todays computing!

there are error logs to backup what he is saying. Are you not sick of your mac straining when it plays and flash content. Sooner its dies or they rewrite better code the better for everyone. multitasking will come in the next update.

Who cares about flash, most porn sites have mobile versions and Pink Visual is even making one spcifically for the ipad ... pinkvisualpad.com
