One might think so, especially in Amazon's case. But they treat Instant Video more like a hobby for the moment. A lousy selection. Apple did win the war against Adobe, but I still really find flash indispensable for now and the next 2-3 years, which is why I am quite pleased with the MS surface and hope for more products along that line. They will give me full desktop functionality and full mobility. No more restrictions and no need to wait for apps.
