Apple isn't taking 'sides' - they're just not making the iPhone an open platform for development. I could go and tell Nokia that I want to write flash for their Nokia 1260 (POS), and bring them to court if they don't comply.

While I don't like Apple making the iPhone/iPad/iPod a locked platform (reminds me of Qualcomm's BREW GIN vs. Java), their control of how the device performs has kept it somewhat functional. This brings it to be the "you're getting a service vs. a product that you own" idea.

Those that want Flash can always go to WinMo, Blackberry, Nokia S60, Android, webOS, PalmOS, etc. There are other vendors.
