Adobe to Give Up On iPhone Development Tools
Another iPhone Fail...
QUOTE: Apple to Adobe: "Someone Has It Backwords"
Certain irony to all of you iPhone haters- the iPhone is making a giant leap forward for open development- solely because Apple is putting their foot down with Adobe's Flash crap. It's Apple making this push- Google can't decide whether or not it likes Flash.
(Also, although Flash for desktop is mature, Flash for mobile most certainly is not. HTML 5 is far ahead of Flash in the mobile world.)
Why do most smartphones support HTML5 and not Flash???
WHY are most phones, in fact ALL phones incompatible with flash right now?
Could it maybe have something to do with the possibility that Steve Jobs was right when he called Adobe "lazy"?

What about the iPhone makes people DEMAND flash/adobe support??
This company, you know, the one you hate but care so so so so so much about, it doesn't care about you. Honestly, it doesn't. Apple cares about the people who are spending money on their products. And most of the iPhones critics don't own an iPhone... weird.

I sell T-Mobile and I see NO flash support currently or planned ...

Adobe belongs nowhere near platform development- period.
But let's look at the facts here-
1) Flash CS5 doesn't follow nor encourage developers to follow ANY iPhone interface guidelines.
2) Flash CS5's iPhone compiler was horribly inefficient. Take a look at the Flash CS5 applications on the iTunes App Store. They're nowhere near as good as native apps.
So that's right upfront. Now, let's look at this:
3) Adobe's track record with updates is abysmal - Adobe didn't even release Intel-native versions of its Creative Suite for 2 years after the transition was anno...
I can't find any argument whatsoever to this.
Who Cares? Apple is yesterday's news.
I guess Apple has pissed off the wrong company. I really wonder what is truly going one.
