PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, Flash on mobile is now completely dead. "There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1. Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th."

I know COBOL's alive (and well?) in the financial industry; to this day banks spend a lot of money on keeping their COBOL-based stuff up and running.

But Flash is a *consumer*-oriented technology. And if consumers don't have it on their devices, why would companies spend a lot of money to keep Flash-based stuff up and running (let alone make more of it)?

Flash's future seems much darker than COBOL's.
