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."

Photoshop, illustrator, acrobat (Creative Suite in general) is Adobe's bread winner. Flash is just one small part, plus it's an acquired technology (being Macromedia prior to purchase.)

I very much doubt Adobe makes any money directly from Flash content, so it's really just the tools. If they move the tools to HTML5, they lose no money from the users who will purchase new CS upgrades and such anyway, plus they then remove the Flash stigma. Full of WIN from my viewpoint.
