As the Apple iPad nears its launch on Saturday April 3rd, 2010 I thought this comic from FoxTrot was a clever twist on the iPad promises.
As opposed to the huge head-start Apple had in the smartphone race there are many Android tablets already out & more upcoming that are more powerful & cheaper but without the Apple price premium.
Apple believes that the iPad is something that will save publishing and the news media while also self serving themselves with another monopolistic app monetization gravy train.
Apple is just looking to avoid any competition holes in the feeding trough by preventing Flash.
This FoxTrot comic calls out publicly the lack of Flash support before the iPad launch to remind all those that sold out on the preorder who its really helping.
