Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs’ open letter “Thoughts on Flash” is a win for the open web, and a logical and well-articulated discussion of why Apple won’t allow Flash on the iPhone and iPad. Hooray. But. While Jobs says he refuses to put his products “at the mercy” of a third party, that’s exactly what Apple asks of all its iPhone app developers, to take the chance that Apple won’t distribute their work for arbitrary reasons (they might “confuse”...

Security vulnerabilities on the other hand become more frequent and users have to update their versions of Flash regularly to secure their computer systems. A life without Flash would mean to make the system more secure. But which consequences would it have in terms of usability? Are there websites and services that would stop...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision.
