    Please Stop Crying. You're a Grown-Up and Should Know Better...

    So what if the iPad doesn't have flash or Java?

    I've been using an iPad for nearly a year now and it hasn't stopped me from using it as the brilliant tool that it is.

    So stop crying and pull yourself together.

    I'm sure it is brilliant for an individual to use. But not on a network and not in a school

    Its pretty and nice to look at, but not productive in my eyes. I am not a fan of sore necks and one handed typing.

    I'm not crying about it, I just don't see the point in a 800 etchasketch. I'm sure it's great for those who like that sort of thing.

    The iPad will surely be the cause of WWIII.

    A device without Flash or Java sounds like heaven to me.

    Sorry but that is simply not true. We have a number of SLT and most of my technical team with them (personal purchases not school). They are on the network happily. They use them extensivley for a variety of tasks and RDP into our terminal server for things like SIMS.

    Granted there are issues with mass deployment etc. which need addressing but they certainly have place on a network and in school.

    I caught a TV ad for someone else's pad; maybe Samsung... The music behind it what the wholly forgettable Queen hit .... FLASH! Brilliant bit of digging the opposition.

    OK - I should have said "Not in MY schools" due to price, lack of flash and java which makes them pretty useless for the students and general use as a mass device
    If people want to bring them in and access my network - virus issues aside - that is fine.
    What tasks do your staff use them for then?

    Or,

    I like to view the web the way the web designer intended, not the way Steve Jobs tells me.

    I wonder what would be said if Microsoft had announced that tey were not allowing flash to be installed in windows, there would be outcries and lawsuits no doubt.

    So you presumably write to each web designer and ask them what monitor they were using & what it was set at in terms of brightness, colour temperature, resolution, etc; plus what browser and plugins they had, and so-on? Because if you don't do all that then you're not really seeing the site the way the designer intended...

    I don't think the new Windows phone runs flash, does it?
