So you got really excited when RIM revealed the PlayBook earlier this year, and are disappointed at all this speculation that it's just vaporware. You wanted a RIM tablet to go with your BlackBerry and you don't really know when you'll be able to have one. Unfortunately, we still can't tell you when the PlayBook is going to launch (other than RIM's very vague 'early next year') but we can show you what you have to look forward to.
RIM has just posted a video of a PlayBook/iPad web-browsing duel to YouTube. Of course, the PlayBook fares pretty well – we can't imagine RIM would post the video if it didn't – but it is nice to get yet another peek of the ever elusive PlayBook. Check the video below and let us know what you think! Can you hold out until 'early 2011' to get one or will you cave and get something else in the meantime?
Oh Hail Jobs!
Flash sucks and it kills performance and battery life. I've never once wished I had flash on my BlackBerry and disable flash on any of my desktop or notebook browsers.
Having said that, I would still like to have the option because I am forced to use flash on occasion while I wait for the rest of the uncivilized developers to adopt their websites to html5. I don't play games.
Too True. Also, the fact is flash its-self doesn't pose any problems, it's the overuse of animated ads on various websites. You can eliminate the ads and have only the desirable content with Firefox and adblock+ (or similar for other browsers that have ad blockers). Apple blaming flash for the problem seems kinda like ford blaming Goodyear for potholes to me.
In the end, who cares if apple users don't get rich content on the web. They can use lynx for browsing for all I care. Imagine how much battery life an ipod would have if you eliminated all that battery draining image rendering too!
Or could it be that you don't know poop from chewy chocolate?
Flash WILL be overtaken by HTML technology very soon, within a decade is my prediction.
Do you see how slow and sluggish the Flash is on the Playbook? Grow up and learn something, will you?
