Flash isn’t a standard on the www. The improvements on html, css jquery,… will make flash redundant

Apple’s loss… for now. Flash is a great platform with a lot of creative developers. HTML5 and W3C are slow. I think HTML5 is good, but Flash is way ahead and Adobe keeps innovating. Flex 4 for example is pure pleasure and my designers/developers love the workflow it enables. HTML5 just won’t attract the creative talent that Adobe CS can.

Users don’t care if it’s HTML5 or flash, they asked me why I cannot see this or that and I see a blue brick in my screen (iPhone, iPad, etc) and in this other phone I can see it…and it looks normal (not slow). For me as a developer is so much easier to have almost the same code in different platforms (applications). And on the browser, meanwhile HTML5 and jquery you can do nice and clean animations (and play videos as the BIG release), with flash you can interact with 3D and videos as textures or materials (important to games and entertaining on the web) and flex4 is a really powerful tool…I was not a big fan of flash a few years ago, but now saves me time and the community is getting bigger and bigger.
