New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind. ~ Steve Jobs
Steve “I want your” Jobs is one of the biggest advocates for HTML5. His comments have opened the way for others to take shots at Flash. The general manager of Internet Explorer, Dean “not of students” Hachamovitch also thinks HTML5 is the future of the web. Dean says that Flash has flaws but is still good for today’s web. That sounds to me like he thinks Flash is similar to day old sushi. You’ll be O.K. if you eat it today, but tomorrow you might puke on yourself.
Advertising rules the web. The fact that advertisements in Flash are never going to be seen by the millions of Apple iPad, iPod, and iPhone users means that Flash is fading. The technology that has the most reach will always win.
