I'm like the iPod, not necisarily going to buy one anytime soon but I like it, ( iTunes 2 rocks!) but what the mac community really needs is...

A good flash player! Macromedia has really neglected the consumer mac market for flash content and give us only a poorly written player and plug-in. What I really want is a proprietary (not inside QuickTime) APPLE WRITTEN flash player (or combination SVG and Flash viewer) and IE5 plug-in that actually works efficiently. A 166 mhz Pentium Pro can out perform my G4 450 when playing flash content. THAT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT!

i'm not so sure everybody thinks flash is such a high priority. i only run into flash once in a while, maybe once or twice in a given month... and i always skip it to get to the real content.

-r.

I hate flash. If a site has Flash, I skip it. If I can't skip it, I won't visit the site.

Flash is fine when used logically, but the problem is 90% of sites I've come across using flash or confusing to navigate, take too long to load and generally get so caught up in graphics that no useful information is given to the reader.

Grrrr

flash sucks, I hate it. I'm always looking for the "skip intro" button.
Innovation for me would be a PDA w/ pockect Osx, airport, a 1GB microdrive for mp3 play, FireWire and IrDa.

My Concern: Developing flash material for clients can be very annoying when you have to use a PC to check correct framerates on animations.

If Apple wants this digital hub internet strategy to work, they need to adapt to evolving new file formats and mediums such as Flash.
