This whole iPhone Flash thing has been a disaster since the start. Normally there is a protracted 'end of life' for products. These end of life notices give advance warning so customers can make critical migration decisions, etc. In this case, there was no warning, it was just "Sorry folks, nobody on iThings can see Flash, we said we would fix it, we lied, too bad.". Left in the lurch without warning, especially after making a recent commitment to actually make Flash for the iPhone, is a total loss of credibility.
