You're going to admit you're wrong, right?

I do not have a dog in the Flash vs HTML5 fight. But if you want others to admit that they are wrong, are you going to admit that your thinking is flawed?

You act as if mobile Flash failed purely of its own accord. Do you not think that Apple's rebuff of Flash for iOS effectively led to Flash's downfall?

For an admittedly ridiculous example (but it illustrates my point), Apple could say that the color blue is bad. Thus, iOS will no longer support display of the color blue. Guess what? Many/most mobile web sites would stop using the color blue. Did blue fail on its own merit? Or did Apple and its iOS market share dictate that result?

Once a company garners massive market/mind share in a given field, it has the power to impose its will and limit choice. And that can be a weakness of our free market, capitalist system.
