    That's still a nice price for a nice piece of kit though - it'll be a while before any android capactive tablet will beat it.

    Similar spec androids are generally about half that price - and you can even do what you want with them rather than what you're told to do.

    Look - its a fair cop - we've got our hands in the air We know they can't spell proxy and yes its very embarrasing - bit like not being able to use Flash but more dishonourable for a geek device

    You mean the flash adverts that are so annoying?
    My iPad never stopped me watching youtube or vimeo videos. Plus Youtube have just switched on HTML 5 embeds so that all works now.

    The only website I have a problem with on my iPad is the BBC News site, but then again thanks to the inane quality of the BBC news reporting nowadays it's no great loss.

    No I mean the videos I go to various sites to watch: 99% of the time they're embedded with flash

    <bit offtopic> Yeah you should be watching a better news channel than that... it's all worry worry worry at the BBC. They seem to like jumping on any bandwagon going.

    Surely most of these are Vimeo or Youtube embeds? On blogs and such?
