Thoughts on Flash

It’s rather amusing to read Apple’s CEO tut-tutting Flash for not being an open developing environment, but plenty of developers with years of Flash skills are watching this very closely.

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a
successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to
push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch
interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.
The avalanche of media outlets offering their content for Apple’s
mobile devices demonstrates that Flash is no longer necessary to watch
video or consume any kind of web content. —Steve Jobs, Apple
