Happy side effect of this foolish wazzing contest
While I do think that Apple are being dicks over Flash (and showing the sort of control-freakery that means I'll never own any Apple kit more elaborate than an MP3 player) a large site ditching Flash in favour of (gasp) HTML can only be a good thing.
Flash: good for games, good for video, catastrophic for any "serious" webbery.
All IMO of course...

The study covers Tory candidate selections and is even called "Politics and the Glass Cliff". Someone's overextrapolating.

As long as 10 years ago I read the advice to register common mis-spellings of your site's URL (e.g. atomz.com used to have atomx.com registered although checking now I see they allowed that one to lapse)
