How the iPad Is Already Reshaping the Internet (Sans Flash)

The Internet’s already starting to look different, says Gizmodo, in a piece of interest not only to everyone with an iPad floating around the UPS system, but also those of us thinking about some other kind of tablet in the medium-term future. As they put it, “The iPad doesn’t run Flash. If your website uses Flash, it won’t play well on the iPad. Turns out, a lot of people want their sites to look pretty on the iPad.”

And an anonymous reader adds this snippet from Webmonkey: “In anticipation of Saturday’s release of the iPad — which doesn’t run Flash — Apple has published a list of ‘iPad Ready’ websites. The sites are all big league sluggers like CNN, The New York Times, People Magazine and MLB.com. Surprisingly, there are also a few video-heavy sites in the mix (Vimeo, Flickr, and TED) which would traditionally rely on Flash Player for video playback.”
