Denver Post getting ready for iPad

“Nobody will change to HTML5 video because of the iPad,” said Adobe flash fans. I think the 300k iPads sold this weekend say otherwise. I was at the eye doctor this morning and was browsing the internet with Safari on my iPhone 3GS while waiting for a checkup. I clicked over to the denverpost.com and where I would normally see the all-to-familiar-blue-flash-plugin-box, instead was a graphic that said iPad compatible video coming soon. What a change 2 days makes. Apple has a significant hold on the portable browsing market with the iPhone. With the introduction of the iPad, they are only strengthening their grasp. Content providers are now starting to look more seriously at the mobile market.
