Customers are fickle buggers, if I did a tenth of what our customers suggested I'd be out of business pretty quick
I get that customers are fickle. Nevertheless I would suggest using caution when ignoring customers' requests.
flash websites are bloody horrible,
How so? Why are they horrible?
flash on the iPhone would be horrible too, it won't getter better on a smaller screen without a mouse and (with) short battery life
Seems to work fine in Android Phones as well as the new Nokia phones.
I don't understand how/why a mouse is required, and the iPhone battery life has problems all on it's own, even without flash, there are some "flash" games you can get from the app store that do the same thing to the battery as what flash itself does.
If Apple really cared about the battery life they would make the battery removable and allow people to carry an extra charged battery on them so when the battery dies they can grab the spare charged one and pop it on... instead they just keep talking about how they are protecting battery life by avoiding flash.... ya right.
If usability and battery life were the real reason for stopping flash then they wouldn't have stopped Adobe's plan for a dev kit that would allow websites to convert their flash into something that would work on iPhone.
But they stopped that too... why?
