Apple updates iPad video to remove Flash

Apple’s introduction video for the new iPad has undergone some changes, quietly.
When Steve Jobs demoed Safari on the iPad on stage, it was obvious that Flash wasn’t on there. Several sites he visited had the now-traditional blue block in place of the Flash player.
In the introductory video that was previewed and later put online, around 2:11 you see the New York Times homepage. A section of the page that uses Flash is clearly visible in the video. This has led to speculation that the iPad will indeed support Flash. No such luck for those that want it.
In an un-announced update to the video, that section has been re-edited to show the blue block.
View the videos yourself and compare. Right around 2:11.

(On a side note, I am on the side of *not* wanting Flash on the iPhone OS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad). Its slow, buggy, and just a bad experience overall.)
