Is the lack of iPad Flash support for security?
F-Secure, 2010-01-28
We've received some questions regarding Apple's iPad, and whether or not the lack of Adobe Flash support is for security reasons.

Well, no, we don't think so.

True, Adobe Flash has been exploitable in the past, and it will undoubtedly be so again, but we think it's more a matter of practicality and not security.

Flash is processor, battery, and bandwidth intensive. Mobile networks and devices are not yet suitable.

Jeff Glueck, the chief executive of Skyfire, very nicely summed up the issue two days ago here at VentureBeat.
