Apple called it...

They said all of this a few years back...the Android community blasted them for it, but I understood what they were saying.

I'm not a professional web developer, but i've build 5 web sites in the past year - each of them without even an ounce of flash in them. They are all fully functional, with sliding graphics, video functionality and audio built in. They all play nicely with my iPhone/iPad, my friends Android devices, my friends blackberry devices (kinda slow on BB). HTML5 is an efficient tool and works well on mobile and on computers.

I think this is a win for the mobile community, and i'm excited to see what Adobe does with AIR for mobile. I'm a huge fan of Adobe, but Flash for Mobile was not my favorite.

I think all of the And...

Apple didn't 'call it' they MADE it waging war on Adobe, Apple was able to successfully marginalize the company and wipe them out of the mobile space....

If this had been done by Microsoft, people would be calling for another round of antitrust lawsuits...

Big difference....between predicting something and making it happen.

Apple never trashed Adobe...they simply said that flash wasn't a suitable solution for mobile...and it wasn't. HTML 5 is way better for mobile. Even web browsers are starting to replace flash with HTML 5.

This isn't the death of Adobe, just a change for the mobile platform. Adobe didn't say they were getting out of the mobile game, they said they were going to focus in air for mobile...which is a smart move.

Apple didn't attack them, they simply didn't build iOS with flash...

So don't get your feelings was Adobes decision, that they made for themselves.
