lol - one rule for Apple, one rule for everyone else. Pretty funny in retrospect - that article was written in April 2010 and by June we had Flash running fine on a range of mobile devices.

"When you browse to Flash content on your iOS device, the software works to repackage it on the fly, converting it to HTML 5, an iOS-friendly format. "

I think Apple won!

What would he know - he always was the sales man, his partner had the brain and technical know-how. Which is why he quit in disgust years ago.

Mate, get a grip, it is only one man, a seriously ill one at that. He has done more for technology than we could ever dream of.

Wasn't it Macromedia or Shockwave who developed Flash originally anyway!

Yes Macromedia, same folks that did Freehand which was their version of Adobe's Illustrator, or 'Frustrater' as designers call it. Adobe bought Macromedia ages ago and stuffed up Flash and killed Freehand which annoyed alot of designers

A lot of crap designers perhaps.

Anyway, this act of war on Flash did a lot of "HTML5" buzz. I put it in quotes because it's magic.
