Anyone knows what Apple restricts or is this sour grapes from the Premiere/FInal cut fight?

I think everyone is waiting for Adobe to perfect their mobile Flash offering. I read that somewhere that I can't recall due to the aging of my brain tissue.

Battery life, Steve has said he doesn't like the current flash offerings.

Stevie (and another major player to be named later, when somebody else responds or I remember) is pushing for HTML5 to become a platform standard rather than one company's proprietary software (yes, there may be some small irony there).

And some developers are apparently not fans of flash for some reason(s).






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Adobe has come up with a potentially workable solution for getting Flash apps on the iPhone, but still hasn't got a way to deliver Flash video content.

Because FLASH SUCKS!

“I have developed significant attachments to several members even though I wouldn't recognize them if I sat next to one on a park bench. I'm often tempted when in an airport to walk around, hollering "The Løpe", to see if anyone other than the Homeland Security people will acknowledge me. ” - The Løpe

"If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us." Justice Robert Jackson

Because Flash sucks on a multi core Mac Pro. How bad would it be on an iPhone? Flash kills my Asus 901 Atom powered netbook running Ubuntu. Flash isn't much better on Windows. Flash will hopefully die, preferably sooner rather than later.

Google and nearly every browser maker is pushing HTML5.
