There was a brief glimmer of hope that the iPad might actually have Flash running on it. Now all hope is gone. Initial ads for the iPad showed it appearing to run Flash in the browser. This raised a host of questions. Were the ads merely mockups? Can the iPad actually run Flash (despite the missing Flash plugins when Jobs demoed the device last week)? Is there something else going on here?
Well it turns out…
There’s no Flash on the iPad and Media Arts Lab, Apple’s advertising agency, is scrambling to tweak the images so they don’t make false advertising claims.
That’s a bummer. Unsurprising but a bummer none-the-less.
