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."

There were no alternatives if you actually wanted to do something (say an action browser game 10 or 5 years ago, or video streaming site 5+ years ago - well, video had alternatives, but they were much worse*), instead of just complaining.

* and desktop browser implementations of HTML5 video somehow manage to be even more demanding on resources than Flash is - on slow or old machines, it's still much better to just set mplayer ~plugin to hijack the playback of video streams.
