Bright Side of News spotted that Apple has now banned the use of any third party compilers or transcoders, starting with iPhone OS 4.0. This means App developers will not be allowed to use Adobe's upcoming Flash-to-iPhone conversion tool to convert applications for the iPhone OS.
This means that Adobe’s soon to be released Flash-to-iPhone conversion tool is out the window. You cannot use it now and have any chance of having your app officially approved. This is incredibly short sighted on the part of Apple. I know they are high on the whole HTML 5 idea but you still HAVE to support other standards. People cry about MS and Adobe being proprietary yet for some reason Apple keeps getting a pass on things like this.

The iPad is a pile of junk anyway. It may be nice to check your e-mails on the couch, but other than that it serves very little needs. You can't use it for work, it's a bad eRader, there are too many restrictions and if you try to use it outside when it's hot the device will shut down due to overheating 8)
