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."

Good riddance!
We need to build the world wide web with open standards.
My hatred for flash goes back a long time, frustrated to get access to some websites from my debian box.
Please keep that proprietary crap to yourselves, adobe.

I wish I could have voted you up tenfold for that comment.

Now that flash is dead, we can concentrate our efforts on killing Android. I hate it even more than flash!

Now if only HTML5 didn't blow so much, we would have a suitable replacement.

HTML5 has no answer to paid content, how can it be considered a serious replacement.
With no Flash we will end up it a nightmare of incompatible, even more proprietary "solutions".
