Following reports pointing out that Apple’s product shots and promotional video for the new iPad tablet showed Adobe Flash running correctly on the device, Apple has removed all instances of Flash running on the iPad from its promotional video and images. Questions began to spread following the discovery of these Flash examples due to the fact that the popular plug-in was noticeably absent from demo models used in last week’s special media event. Adobe has publicly criticized Apple for the iPad’s lack of Flash support, claiming that the company was imposing “restrictions on their devices that limit both content publishers and consumers.”
