The best way for Adobe to save Flash is by killing it

,----[ Quote ]
| Having done several years of Flash 
| development and having worked with many 
| Flash developers, the recent controversy 
| between Apple and Adobe over Flash on the 
| iPad is very amusing to me. First, there 
| are a few arguments that I want to address 
| directly:
| But Flash is the only way to deploy a 
| consistent cross platform solution!


Apple's iPad marketing sparks complaint

,----[ Quote ]
| A consumer said he told the agency Apple is 
| falsely advertising that the device 
| supports Flash


The death of Flash has been greatly exaggerated

,----[ Quote ]
| Following the news that the iPad would not 
| support the Flash plugin, some people have 
| been clamoring for the death of Flash. Not 
| so fast cowboy, that horse ain't dead yet!. 
| Although it is true that Flash is far from 
| perfect it is currently a necessary evil 
| because so many web games and web 
| application are written in Flash.


HTML5 Editors Draft Hits W3C, Flash Doesn't Break a Sweat (yet)

,----[ Quote ]
| The HTML5 specification came another step 
| closer to becoming a Web standard today, as 
| the first editors draft of the technology 
| was released to the World Wide Web 
| Consortium. HTML5 is the technology that 
| makes up a significant portion of webOS, 
| the new and improved Google Voice mobile 
| web portal, YouTube and a few other notable 
| Web services. This is great news for the 
| Web as a whole and for the webOS platform 
| in particular, but what are the 
| implications for Adobeâs Flash technology?


Momentum of HTML5 the Emerging Web Standard 

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has already said that Firefox will 
| not support H.264. Google's Chrome browser 
| does support H.264, but the company also 
| recently moved to acquire On2, makers of 
| another, competing video codec which means, 
| if nothing else, Google isn't completely 
| satisfied with H.264 either.



ave "Sita Sings the Blues" from the Flash format: can you convert FLA?

,----[ Quote ]
| Nina Paleyâs âSita Sings the Bluesâ is
| becoming a huge critical success, and may
| even succeed financially, which is unusual
| for any independent film, but virtually
| unprecedented for free culture films
| (âSitaâ was released under the CC By-SA).
| Thereâs only one sad thing about this for
| free software fans, and thatâs that âSitaâ
| was made using proprietary software, and
| the âsource codeâ is in a proprietary
| format: Adobe Flashâs âFLAâ format, to be
| precise. Paley has posted these files on
| the Internet Archive, but she doesnât know
| how to translate them into any free
| software friendly format (and neither do
| I). Can you help?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
