I think there definately needs to be something done about flash on the iphone, I think Apple abandoning it all together is not the answer. Sure Flash uses rollover functionality that mobile devices can't do, but I am sure there is a way Adobe can either change this somehow or prevent only those websites that use rollover on mobile devices. It is sad for me to think that Apple can dictate what I get on my phone. Who cares if it is a resource hog, or not...that should really be up to the iphone/ipad owner to decide if we want to access flash sites and games in exchange for shorter battery life. I have had AT&T from the beginning, but the entire reason I got on this forum and learned how to jailbreak and unlock in the first place was because I wasn't about to let AT&T and Apple tell me what I could and couldn't do with my phone I paid full price for. If Apple allowed flash and people stopped using flash, then it would be a different story, but to me this just sounds like another instance of Apple telling me what I can and can't do with MY phone. I own my own company, and I did have plans to buy multiple iPad 3g's and i7-980x mac pros (still rumored I know) when they came out, but both those plans have been put on hold due to the whole Apple vs. Adobe thing. Apple better do something in the future, or the last thing I will have bought from them will be my iPhone.

Maybe Adobe should now boycott both Macs and PC!
HTML5 is definitely the way to go, can't wait for Flash to finally die. But as long as there's idiots supporting that old out dated piece of crap, it'll be around I guess. Technology is moving faster than the adoption rate of dumb people and we get to hear them complain over and over again.

AppleInsider | Inside Apple's iPad: Adobe Flash
MS's Hachamovitch goes on to acknowledge that video on the web today is primarily Flash-based, and while Microsoft continues to work with Adobe on Flash, he also notes that it carries some issues related to reliability, security, and performance. Wow, news flash!!! Security vulnerabilities have followed every release of flash for the past 7 years, bet you didn't know that fact. Their security vulnerabilities opened your PC up like a barn door in a tornado, and you wouldn't have even known it.
And where is the long promised flash on mobile devices, eg: Android. Promised back in Jan'09 and now they say "oh, later dude". They can't write code for tish. Fact, Adobe had only one code writer for Linux. Yeah, really good work practices there, and if he got sick or hit by a bus???
Not only Apple, but Linux and MS have had performance issues. The fact is, Adobe in their stupid arrogance thought nobody would challenge them or their crappy plugin, and now so they will end up in the closet with the floppy disk and DOS command line. Be a troglodyte and stay in the past, but don't stop those of us who wish to move forward. I think the only little kid here is you. I look forward to not having to hear the screams of the whiny punks who love to play with their "flash" one handed.
Suffer Adobe, and your garbage software. Ha ha ha ha!!!!! Who are the dicks now???? Viva Apple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ding dong the witch is dead......

Flash does mainly 4 things
3. Web games
4. Makes websites annoying to use through useless animations
Well I hate 2 and 4 so that doesn't matter. As far as video goes plain H.264 is less processor intensive and more open than H.264 video inside of flash. The only thing I don't know if we have a good replacement for is web games.

For your information, every website is written in html no questions asked. html is the internet standard. Flash is a plugin for websites. since its a plugin and not very good it has a ton of issues. all html5 is doing is adding a standard for the abilities flash provides you to do. but html5 actually does it right. If you have ever watched a HD video on youtube using html5, it is amazing. html5 loads the whole video in approx. 2seconds in HD. and this enables you to click around the whole video as you pleased. facebook also adopted html5 and its fast. flash needs to load everytime you you try to click to a part of a video and also on higher definition videos flash doesnt even load fast enough to keep up with the video playing. Also this can be applied to games .etc if you search for html5 stuff you will find some amazing things

.. looks like we have to go on . Flash is quiet a cool Application , but to do a step further sometime it needs to do a step backwards to get to the best mobile direction.
