iPad Flash frustration

I know, I know, I’m barking up a tree that won’t do any good. I’m still mad at Apple for deciding not to include Flash on the iPad. Yes Steve, I bought an iPad, but I could be happier if Flash were included. You warned me about issues that it might cause and I’m willing to live with those risks for now!

Today, I downloaded the application “Pulse” – which is advertised as the new iPad RSS reader that is going to shock the world… and it is very nice. I like it. However, it seems that much of what I’m interested in reading includes Flash content. Lots of the content is videos from the Canon HDSLRs that I blog about over on planet5D. And, as far as I know, most of the video players are Flash based… boo hoo!

I’ve also had lots of requests for iPad / iPhone versions of my blog posts (again because of the videos). And I haven’t yet been able to find a way to accomplish that.

So here I am trying to use Pulse to catch up on reading, and 2/3 of the posts I’m wanting to read include flash content. Making it very difficult to do my job properly. Steve! I’m having trouble!

Well, even tho I wrote him to complain, I don’t think we’ll get our Flash back and I’ll be frustrated until the world bends to his plans.

Anyway, if you are looking for an RSS reader for the iPad, check out Pulse!
