Comment Re:Why really does Apple behave this way? (Score 2, Insightful) 432

Go watch Flash running on a Nexus One and tell me Apple is saving the world from those milliseconds of latency.

milliseconds of latency on every single executed flash bytecode instruction... billions and billions and billions of them, all of which also require electricity that will be drained from the battery.

show me a flash application that can't be written natively and function better and use less resources.

show me a flash application that without it, your phone is useless.

you mean an identifier like the html "id" attribute? or a more generalized "class" attribute?

how is forcing everyone to declare their paragraphs and authorship in a fixed format better than allowing them to declare it however they want, achieving the same thing more simply?

if you want rules-based automated processing, you can do that with html... pretty much the entire modern web is built on that. HTML+CSS+CMS > DocBook

it's also illegal to open network packets not addressed to you that utilize no encryption, unless you were specifically granted authorization.
