OK Lucy, 'splain to me how all those mobile devices are gonna use the millions of existing Flash sites?
'Splain that to me

It doesn't matter if you like Flash or not, without it you cannot view the entire web.
The average Joe Surfer doesn't care about the technology issues of Flash vs HTML 5, nor the security implications, Joe just wants to see the website, simple as that.
A vast majority of photographers and artists use Flash sites so I assume people using iJunk don't need any of their services whatsoever. Not to mention all the sites using Flash headers and menus they got from those template sites.
Example: Andy Beal, well known guy in this industry, also does photography and has a Flash site [bealphoto.com...] which the iCrowd cannot see.
It's obvious everyone that drank the Flash kool-aid was led down the primrose path, pockets plundered for piles of cash, and now as mobile phones, specifically iPhones, become mildly disruptive, the whole Flash customer base gets cut off from all those potential iPhone customers.
Not good for business as I'd have a real hard time drinking the new kool-aid and buying their HTML 5 Flash replacement after being kicked to the curb in such a way after my initial investment in Flash and being a loyal customer.
When things like this happen I tend to look for new solutions and new vendors.
