Adobe stops Flash Development on Mobile Browsers
 
 

This comes a bit unexpected. According to ZDNet, Adobe informed developers and partners that the stop developing the Flash player for mobile browsers. Yes, the one major big thing Android device makers were touting over the Apple devices is going to be history. Adobe takes Steve Jobs advice to focus on HTML5.

Specifically Adobe will focus its resources on Adobe AIR for all major app stores, expressive content on the desktop and HTML5 in general. Adobe is only bug fixing the current Flash Player for Android and RIM PlayBook. 

So Flash is going to be history, at least on mobile devices. HTML5 is going to be the way to make interactive web pages going forward. Note, that Adobe did not make any official announcements yet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
