It's 2010. Mobile access to the web, either on a portable PC or on a handset is a reality thanks to WiFi and 3G. But we only have access to certain parts of the web, thanks to the widespread adoption of Adobe Flash.
Well folks, we knew this day would come sooner or later. Adobe Flash for Android is now officially dead starting tomorrow. While it was widely reported that Flash was only disabled on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, starting tomorrow Adobe will disable all new installs of Flash for Android.
There’s so much talk as to whether Flash ultimately failed or succeeded.
Why does adobe flash work on some sites and not on others? Isn't that why Android made such an impact in the market, because Apple doesn't have this feature? Does anyone have a way around this issue? I love my M.....but come on Adobe!
Adobe on Tuesday unveiled Flash Player 10.1 for Mobile together with a slew of announcements from partners and content providers. The new Flash edition has been optimized for efficient battery and CPU usage, addressing two of the key criticisms Apple CEO Steve Jobs had made of the platform.
In case you'd missed it, Apple and Adobe are locked in a battle. It's a battle over which standards will prevail in our web browsers. On one side, Adobe and its Flash platform is the reigning champion. Flash has been the powerhouse behind the distribution of video and other rich web content. But coming out of the other corner is the challenger.
