Uh, Safari most certainly does support Flash. It's only the iPhone and its derivatives that do not.

QFT'ed. Apple has been extremely lax in fixing the issues WRT to flash and safari. In retrospect it probably has been done on purpose to help "wean" apple peeps off it before they lowered to boom so to speak. They way apple has been acting I wouldnt put this past them to be actively blocking his site. There arrogance needs a good old fashioned beat down to bring them back down to earth. :/

Bingo!!! Although why anyone would use Safari is beyond me.

Thats another topic though......His idea is good and all but it is still the wrong way to go about it.

I won't deny that Apple is a company with their head in the clouds, but this story looks very sketchy. Think about how many people bash apple on a regular basis and apple doesn't care. I don't see Apple caring about one youtube celebs one video.

If I really tried I'm sure I could find some flash content that doesn't work in IE, but that doesn't mean the MS went outta the way to shaft that website.

People are missing the issue.........

It's not that his flash won't run on safari, it's that the exact same flash runs fine on safari so long as it isn't being hosted from his domain........

lOl. Apple is pathetic for doing that, interesting that he caught it. I wonder if theyll even acknowledge it or just say 'oops, it was a bug'.
