    Exactly its a specific stat that doesn't really mean much without context.

    How much of ALL video is h264? How much of ALL video is in HTML5? I suspect its still only a fraction but then that would not be an all signing all dancing headline.

    Well first of all Apple tried it's hardest to NOT make USB the standard, they were pushing their own technology called FireWire, and the original iPods could only be synced through FireWire, not USB. It was only when they realized that nobody was going to adopt that they start allowing USB syncing. In regards to the 802.11 standard, it was patented in 1995 and since then there hasn't really been any attempt by another standard to try to compete with it.

    You know, there is an SBSettings toggle you can install.

    How is calling for open standards on embedded web content "walling" choices for the customer?????? Flash is closed, proprietary, you have to buy adobe tools to make flash content and adobe deliberately killed its competition off to get the market dominance it has had for 15 years. They don't improve their plugin, won't optimise it for Linux or OSX and have the "screw you" attitude when anyone complains how much of a dog it is to run. That's why apple didn't want it bricking their devices and crashing the browser.

    So I have to put up with that just because YOU don't want alternatives that are free???? Open your eyes and walk into the 21st century man. Why use a plugin to render video inside my browser using high end cpu to do so when that can be done right inside the browser itself using no more cpu???

    Apple didn't decide this, the market place did and adobe still sits on its hand while crappy mobile flash crashes on every device. *clap clap clap*. Way to treat the end user adobe. The market always gets it right and adobe has just shot itself in the foot, or the head even. Game over, Flash loses.

    as nearly all sites that support HTML5 were using Flash and probably still do as like the person stated on page 1 that there just opening the doors for a wider audience.

    On a side note I hate Apple forums as some of the users are brain washed numpties that see a head line (or something from Jobs lips) and take it 100% literally, flash is still on nearly ever webpage out there and is still strong, I don't see punk-o-matic (well good game) in HTML5 format or any decent flash game for that matter.

    HTML5 mobile devices
    Flash everything else

    and flash doesn't crash Mac's Jobs quick to point the blame as we found out with the Antennagate fiasco.

    bring on the haters lol
    Nice troll. You obviously haven't used flash on anything else other than your pc. Macromedia wrote flash predominately for the pc over 15 years ago, then when anti trust lawsuits popped up, they had to provide it for the other two platforms. They have treated linux and osx uses like pig dogs. Don't expect anyone from the other side of the computer world to have any respect for adobe or flash.

    No real person cares for flash games let alone have time for them, it's just for pimple face dorks with nothing better to do. HTML5 does the video, javascript and css will eventually do the rest. There are other coding systems out there and whoever does the best to enable gaming inside the browser (no crappy plugins) will win that race. Again, adobe failed to see the new dawn and now it's got burnt. Doesn't matter what you think, the market has chosen, and flash isn't in the show. Suck it up.

    The simple fact is most browsers people are using on the Internet don't support HTML5. More to the point if you're browser supports both Flash & HTML5 most web designers make Flash the default media player.
    Flash is a long way from being dead, I refuse to buy an iPad until there is flash support as it would become my main web browsing device. What's the point if I have to revert back to my laptop/desktop everytime I stumble across a flash webpage I want to view that doesn't support HTML5?
    And what are these most important web pages with flash that you really need to view on an iPad?

    I can believe people are actually using Comex's frash to judge Flash performance on iOS devices. I mean come on it sucks because all you've seen is basically an hack made by 16 year old. And it's still beta which doesn't really matter since it's still not made by Adobe. Now if you're talking about Macs which aren't iOS then it's only macs because flash doesn't crash on my windows laptop.
    Spoken like a TRUE fanboy. Why are you here? Troll much.

    Actually firewire was developed because usb 1.0 was slower and companies like Sony were pushing it for their video cameras. Apple dropped firewire for its devices when usb 2.0 came in, being faster than firewire. It went with the faster standard. What's wrong with that? There is a faster standard being developed which could supersede usb one day, if only the industry could agree on one standard. Like the whole vhs/betamax battle again.

    Yes, a faster USB standard and they are calling it USB 3.0. It should be out very soon if it isn't already.

    I know about usb 3, but there is work ongoing with light optic cables. Incredibly fast speeds. The plan was for a change over within 5-8 years.

    Blatant example of the hostility in your posts. You "come armed with a baseball bat" just as often as those you loathe.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty certain FireWire is FASTER than USB 2.0.

    FireWire 400 is the same speed as USB 2.0. FireWire 800 is twice as fast.

    Firewire 800 is.

    Oh get over yourself. Flash games are for juveniles. They just haven't realised it yet.

    These ARE apple forums and those who just come to troll and bash shouldn't expect a free swing, and if you don't like it you can always leave you know.

    Ah... Yes you can.

    I could see HTML 5 gaining ground regardless of whether or not Jobs endorses it. This was in the works for years.

    I don't disagree with your stance on Flash, only the way you present your argument. But, saying "it's just for pimple face dorks with nothing better to do" in no way supports your argument. It is simply a passive insult and is uncalled for.

    Absolutely it will. Adobe isn't standing idly by though. They have already released a Flash to HTML5 convertor. They know which way the tides are changing and will not be left behind. They also are really a great company as far as customer support and product innovations. A lot of companies could learn a lesson from them.

    It's pretty funny reading the replies of brainwashed Apple fans.
    HTML5 will never fully replace Flash due to the working group stating that there will never be a form of DRM on the HTML5 video tags.

    Even after that, the HTML Working Group have stated that HTML5 isn't yet ready for mainstream.

    And worst of all, there isn't yet a standard for video codecs. Someone made a point that HTML5 will end up fragmented like Android. It's true and it already has. Each browser supports a different list of HTML5 / CSS3 features, and some different video codecs (H.264 and WebM/VP8).

    When you look into it, HTML5 is currently a running joke. One day it will be the future, but not yet.
