HTML5 video embedding is not meant to support flash, only ogv or mp4, I think..

As for youtube, there's already a HTML 5 beta version available: http://www.youtube.com/html5

I think it would be interesting to watch it on an episode of "Will it blend?" What saddens me is I know a bunch of die-hard mac fans who swear to death by this thing, and it's "1337" capabilities for doing absolutely nothing. I would be willing to buy it, if my girlfriend had a serious case of PMS that needed a hoover dam to stop it. Seeing as that's not happening, I think Maxipads will keep controlling this market

Like everyone else, I think it's a totally useless oversized iPod, nothing new like almost all of Apple's "Super revolutionary products".. Seriously.. they're really not listening what the users are asking and just releasing more useless crap to get money out of us. I'm really decieved by this conference.. Was hoping to see the iPhone 4G..

you mean it doesn't support mind control, its getting worse & worse for this thing. osx could fix all its flaws, imho that's the only thing stopping is domination on the netbook front (well that & the osx86 project)
