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".

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.

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.

If you think you need flash you are sorely mistaken,

Oh am I? I like to visit 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.

Try again next time pal, I don't use a Mac, I've been running Linux for the past 6 years as my only OS.

Flash is a useless turd, its the only reason Firefox would crash on any OS I've used up till the last few updates that pulled the flash plugin out of the process tree, but it's still capable of slowing any system to a crawl.

I live in south east Wisconsin, there are no less then 6 local news stations, for news sites there are several more when you take into account the local papers and newsletters, all up thats something like 15 local news sites, there isn't much I can't find without flash, what I can't I get off the Mythbuntu media server with the Gray-Hoverman antenna.

Just because someone is anti flash doesn't mean they drink the coolaid, hell, most of the Mac users I know don't drink it either and either run OSx86 or run it in a VM simply because the Mac versions of the apps they need for work are simply better then the Windows counterparts.
