Internet & Networking Not too long ago Adobe started a "We love Apple" campaign, as a response to Apple's continuous negative remarks about the company. With Flash 10.1 slowly but surely appearing on more and more mobile devices, it seems like the company just doesn't care about it any more. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen has said they've "moved on".

All these proprietary formats and platforms will kneel before Android.


An Android tablet would actually appeal to me over the ipad simply for having Flash. Reading news sites on a tablet without Flash would annoy the hell out of me.


I for one cannot WAIT for a truly open, truly anonymous, and truly standards compliant web. It's going to happen, and when it does, our species will evolve and improve much more quickly!


Thanks for the laugh. People want to get on the internet and watch Hollywood crap as quickly as possible and could care less about how it works.

I also see no evidence that humans are evolving into some higher state of consciousness. The smartest people I know have the fewest children and this seems to be a constant throughout the US.

And what crapliy made news sites are you using that require flash? 99% of news can be found elsewhere easily on sites that don't require flash.

I hate flash for the same reason I hate jscript, it's a slow, buggy, security hole laden turd.

Neither of which are necessary, and using them simply for the sake of using them get us horrendous shit storms like Google's new image search site which manage to scroll at the incredible speed of 1 "page" of images per minute.

If you think you need flash you are sorely mistaken, you can get your free porn fix quite easily from any myriad of rapidshare, megaupload etc, torrent sites or usenet.

The only use for flash was the animations found on sites like newgrounds or on South Park.

Local news sites still make significant use of flash.

But thanks for telling me what my browsing needs are. Maybe you should work for Apple.

Oh am I? I like to visit Gametrailers.com and there isn't a non-Flash alternative.

Flash isn't going anywhere. Both you and Jobs are going to have to deal with this reality.

You should try changing your browser, you could find this new ajaxy "web 2.0" thing quite a change from the old web.

You may want to start your experiments with gmail.

Clearly you don't have a wife - even if you may not need flash, women manage to find themselves in flash powered websites every now and then (and subsequently complain about your misconfigured computer).
