There is well documented feud that developed years ago between Steve Jobs and Adobe and it has not helped the case for flash on IOS devices. Jobs banned applications, one of which was created by Adobe, that translated flash code so that it would be compatible for IOS. I know of the battery drain arguments but my feeling is give people the choice and let them make the decision rather than lock things down.

At the end of the day, Apple are masters of the closed system and most other systems (Android, Windows, Open Source) are open systems. Each have their pluses and minuses.

In reference to a previous post - I actually bought a Toshiba Thrive refurb off WOOT just because it had an SD card slot and USB ports.  I love being able to pop my memory card out of the camera and into a 10.1" screen so I can quickly zoom and see if my amateurish photos are in focus or not. (Im still not good with manufal focus and I shoot in JPEG+RAW).

I also love that the thrive has an HDMI out port, so I can go back home and show everyone what pictures I took on the big screen just by plugging my tablet into the TV.

These kinds of features make the IPAD a non-interest to me.

I haven't used it, but there is a app on Android for live view with canon cameras...

Maybe I am asking too much... but based on your sales pitch, I am willing to buy the Thrive... if you can confirm that the DSLR tethering app works on that device (I really "want" this app) ... apparently it does not work on all Android devices.

Well, if we are going to rag on Apple, I'm still mad that they refuse to play nice with Flash.

You can have a beautifully designed website that shows off your work and then, if you want to show it to someone using an iPad the thing either won't work or you have to have it default to a second- or third-rate presentation.  Worst part is, there is no legitimate reason for Apple to cripple their OS by refusing to play with Flash.

Steve J. felt no desire to support Adobe technology that he felt wold be outdated by HTML5 ... which is still not a viable platform replacement for Flash.

I don't know how much utility a tablet tether would really bring.  Sounds like a tangle of cables and lots of opportunities for drops.  I agree just get an air if you need to tether.
.

 I'm not sure what you're picturing when you say a tangle of cables. The tether uses 1 cable -  that's 1 individual cable - it's plural -  singular - less than two & more than zero. Why would a 10 inch tablet be more difficult to hold than a laptop?
 ??? ???

HOLD??  If I could tether smooth liveview, I'd build an awesome Honey-I-Shrunk-The-Kids hat contraption.

Perhaps this would make the iPad 3 less lame?
