    I recently got an Iphone(first gen), and am running into the constant issue of getting the annoying little blue box with the question mark when trying to view videos and such online. ...A buddy of mien has a Mac hoem computer and said he fixed that issue with a program called "Flip4Mac"...is there a similiar fix program for the Iphone?

    That's because you are trying to view Flash content and the iPhone doesn't currently support Flash. Nothing you can do at this point.

    Steve claims that flash is "useless" for a mobile platform at this point :rolleyes:

    And the current versions of Flash are. They need one made specifically for the iPhone. In addition, I have yet to come along a single site where I really needed Flash while on my phone. Flash is becoming less and less useful as time goes on.

    Weasel, that just seems like being too much of an Apple apologist :o

    Fact is, there are LOTS of sites out there that optimize flash and iPhone Safari should have it if it wants to tout itself as a true browser

    I guess. They just better have an option to turn Flash off. The majority of Flash you see on websites is banner adds and crap like that. It'd put a bit more of a drain on the battery loading all of them and then you'd have even more people crying about how long the battery lasts.
