Hardware, Embedded Systems In 2009 ARM showed off prototype netbooks "capable of driving HD content, can surf the web for 8 hours, and will cost round and about 250 USD". Yet still, none have made it to the market. Why do you think this is so? Because ARM signed a deal with Adobe in 2008 to bring Flash and AIR to the ARM architecture, a promise they will finally deliver later this year. And you wonder why Apple won't have Flash on the iPhone when it can hold back an entire product category for two years.

Flash is over - its gone. Adobe have completely failed to keep pace with the mobile computing revolution.

Flash isn't going anywhere. Hulu and other big publishers prefer Flash to H.264 because it has content protection and is better suited for ads while Google is helping cement Flash by including it in Chrome and keeping it the default format for YouTube.

The only way Flash could have been killed off was with the help of Google.
