On the Apple keynote, Steve Jobs was showing of the Browser on the iPad by loading the New York Times website. When he loaded a page on the NYT website the iPad was showing a blue Lego icon, this means that the iPad was unable to load the Flash content on that webpage.

Because of the bleu Lego icon everybody now knows that the iPad will not support flash.

“It looks like Apple is continuing to impose restrictions on their devices that limit both content publishers and consumers. Unlike many other ebook readers using the ePub file format, consumers will not be able to access ePub content with Apple’s DRM technology on devices made by other manufacturers. And without Flash support, iPad users will not be able to access the full range of web content, including over 70% of games and 75% of video on the web.

If I want to use the iPad to connect to Disney, Hulu, Miniclip, Farmville, ESPN, Kongregate, or JibJab — not to mention the millions of other sites on the web — I’ll be out of luck.”

98% of all desktop computers supports flash and version 10.1 works on the Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Mobile and WebOS. Most analysts believe that Apple still blocks flash from working on the iPhone because it would take away business from its App Store.
