Why? Because if the news source wants Apple followers they provide other encodings such as PDF, HTML5 and more.
Are you saying they are ignoring Apple users.
I switched to Mac this week (late fall 2012 iMac) and only noticed that Flash was missing this morning, when I tried to read my virtual newspaper. Tried to install it, failed, did a lot of reading on the topic. As I have Parallels installed its not a huge deal, but I do want the Mac to perform. Does anyone have a good workaround? Is anyone living without Flash? I wonder why I can read my paper on my iPhone? I never noticed it did not have Flash.
