good ..the smaller format is ideal for all flash sites
I for one would be grateful if Apple made its platform at least a bit more accessible...
|although Apple's iPhone would continue not to use the software. |
Yet another reason to add to my growing list of why I should drop my iPhone and move on to a G-phone when my contract expires next month.
I honestly have not come across a situation where I've needed flash on my phone to do a task I was looking to do.
People who buy phones that can surf tend to like gadgets and shiny things ( which is why Iphone is shiny ..so they can see themselves in it ..so are all the other net capable touch screen phones I've seen ) flash is the best for building shiny , whizzy "wow" sites ..to sell things to the owners of those phones ..
Touch screen phones are the latest "chav" must have in Europe ..along with the pit bull and the ertsatz hip hop for white folks blaring out of the car or the house ..ther IQ may be the same as their shoe size and frequently is ..but they can be easily parted from their money ..and easier still with flash ( which is why so much of what is left of TV advertising now uses flash ) ..I presume it's similar in the US and elsewhere from what I see from the net and TV ..
Here in fora we dont count as average anything owners ..we actually use our computers to do things ..
Adobe has been able to sell Flash to big firms as a technology based upon its market penetration. That doesn't wash any more. The people with money, key customers, who splash out on iPhones, don't have Flash any more... it's not people with out-of-date machines who never buy things anyway. Movers-and-shakers, early-adopters and trend-setters are using iPhones, and if they can't use the Flash site then that is serious brand damage.
iPhone probably doesn't want flash because it means apps outside their control. Go slap apple for being ignorant.
As for flash on portable devices, about time.
yet still no flash in 64 bit?
oh well i actually like surfing the flash free web in my 64 bit browser.
Flash websites were never a good idea to begin with. Anytime I have to sit and wait for something to load is time wasted. If the application I want to view/use is Flash then that's fine, but the actual website should never be.
Flash already seems to work quite well on my HTC hero mobile - Which is a highly recommended phone. (Has the best mobile web experience out of all the smart phones, its multitasks too, unlike the iphone)
