iPhone Users Want Flash?

Skyfire was providing an iPhone browser that promised Flash access yesterday:

Skyfire for iPhone promises to transcode Web-based Flash video on the fly to an iPhone-friendly format.

I suspect that the demand made Steve Jobs a bit unhappy:

Skyfire Labs was caught off guard by the demand for its services, and the company was forced to stop selling the Skyfire browser on iTunes just hours after the app debuted.

While I'm no fan of Flash, here's the thing - the iPad is a great device for watching streaming video, and all of the major TV sites - the network sites and Hulu being the ones I'm thinking of - use Flash. I'm somewhat surprised that the app got approved in the first place :)
