HDMI, cables... Really ? cables are soo passÃ©. Spend the 99 bucks and get an AppleTV and unleash the awesomeness of AirPlay. And no this doesn't mean you need to start buying crap from iTunes. It means you can beam anything to your HDTV and it is amazing. Even XVID Avi's etc. Even for the most basic things like showing pictures on your HDTV wirelessly.. Awesome.
Yes, USB drive would be nice. I have the camera kit and it somewhat sucks. Really lame that I can't transfer files to/from iPad. But I still love my iPad, specially since my PC died last month and it's my only device, for now.
And FLASH?!??? ROTFL, flash is dead and it truly CRAP. Even Adobe has thrown in the towel and announced they are discontinuing the bloated crapware on mobile platforms. Flash blows completely and totally. Yes it worked but at the cost of great amounts of CPU and RAM, and the continuous annoyance of flash ads.
The only annoying thing is that smaller websites (restaurants etc..) don't have the resources to convert their flash sites to HTML5 or other technology.
BTW, free flash games have nothing to do with it. Flash Games dont hold a candle to real app games, they are nowhere close. Flash is crap and proven so. It failed on all the android platforms and the playbook, as Adobe has admitted.
