They could also use HTML5 video, instead of (I'm assuming) flash, which would eliminate the need for a second app and a second sub.

It's really a business decision that they have made...and it's one that others in their place have refused to make. I think that it makes sense to think differently and get a tablet or device that runs Flash in this case...
all this senseless downloading additional apps to read flash or dropbox to replace USB (which should be SOP on any computing device) on and on.

or just get an Android device that reads both Flash and HTML5 HAS USB ports, HAS HDMI ports. HAS expandable memory.

I just don't get the whole Apple thing. I did it for a couple of years with the first two iPhones but once Androids became high end, I jumped ship and will never look back. I don't have all my media tied into the iTunes eco system and all that garbage.

sure Apple products are good looking. no denying that. They perform well, and they do run the best marketing and advertising campaigns in the country.

but the tradeoffs are too much. Too walled in, too much of pain to free your media if you decide to break out of the Apple world, Apple picks senseless fights and in this case a losing fight with Adobe flash.

Too many tradeoffs with too many other better products.

I looked at a tablet which did not have flash. One of the main things I do on the internet, the site requires flash to log in. This is something I do everyday. It's not worth it to me to get an ipad or any other device if I can't do simple routine things without a lot of hassle. SD card/USB port/ portability is also a big deal for me. What if I want to take my info to my sisters house or to work. Much easier to carry a tiny little SD card or USB drive. Besides as much as people I know love apple the control they have over what you can or can't do with their devices bothers me. Isn't that why most of us don't like DRM on our e-books?

Is it just me or do you take the line that certain technologies are outdated because Apple says so? You seem to be unwilling to say... well... anything detrimental to Apple in this thread.

Can't use USB? It's outdated, nevermind that the majority of computer users likely use it.

Can't use Flash? It's outdated, again nevermind that... yeah, you get it.

I don't know, just an observation.

Ignoring the rest, but the iPad can use USB, it just has extremely limited support for what can be done with it. (Such as not appearing as a mass storage device)

so, the iPad can't connect via USB? Not even some bluetooth? outrageously lame.

I prefer my smartphone anyway, which can connect via both and also to wifi and 3G...
