"Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th"

The good news is that's it's not easy to get an Android phone updated to current software! Irony, that.

Steve is smiling from the grave.

Which is a shame… I think he’d have enjoyed that almost as much as the Dell thing.

You're living in some alternative universe where somehow Google is struggling and Android is a bust. Open your eyes boy.

Flash is far from my favorite technology, but I will miss the ability to watch Amazon Instant Video on newer devices. Flash works well enough for the occasional video, perhaps Amazon will switch to HTML5 or release an actual Android app for their video service?

In the meantime...

Apple's iPhone takes 75% worldwide of cellphone profits

Now that's an eye-opener!

The profits come mostly from the blue smoke and mirrors of carrier fees. Less from actual sales where Apple's marketshare is being rapidly usurped by the Android juggernaut. Apple would be the most profitable even if they didn't sell a single iPhone based on that.

There's no shame in admitting you (no one specific) were wrong. Seriously.
In fact, I've more respect for a person or company if they do.

Ok, but does that mean Adobe will now try to take over HTML5 with their own bastardized version?

I'm pretty sure Jimmypoo's comments were referring to Steve''s opinion of Flash, NOT Google/Android.

I prefer to think of it as customers being willing to pay more for something they perceive as having more value.

why do I care how about Apple's profit margin?

I can think of three possible reasons:
1. You believe the company is important and its continued viability depends on its profitability
2. Greater profitability allows more and better product development and availability
3. You're a shareholder; greater profitability leads to better ROI

The profits come mostly from the blue smoke and mirrors of carrier fees. Less from actual sales where Apple's marketshare is being rapidly usurped by the Android juggernaut.

Those carrier fees are an arrangement between the carriers and their customers, i.e. a form of time payment arrangement for the hardware. In most cases, carriers pay Apple the full cost up front.

Regarding Android's market share: I think that to a increasing extent, Android and iOS are not serving the same markets. Android's unit volumes are now coming primarily from the sale of devices that are sold as default (generic phone) models or feature phones; iOS phones are targeted explicitly to customers desiring smart phones. There are plenty of indicators to back up that contention, not the least of which is the relative profitability of the two platforms. Other indications include Web traffic statistics, application sales and related statistics, significant differences in customer loyalty between the two platforms, and ad revenues.

Why oh why couldn't Adobe have addressed the problems with Flash head-on back when they first encountered them? If Flash had been lean well-coded software, Steve Jobs (and many others) wouldn't have gotten their undies in a bundle about it.

It would have taken some programming. I was under the impression that Adobe employed programmers...
