Adobe Pulls Flash Player From Android Google Play Store [bbc.co.uk]
Adobe is pulling its Flash Player plug-in from Android's Google Play store.

It follows a decision to halt development of the software for mobile devices.

But Adobe said it was removing the option to install the plug-in because it was likely to exhibit "unpredictable behaviour" when used with the latest version of Android, known as Jelly Bean.

It also suggested that smartphone owners who had upgraded to the latest system should uninstall the Flash Player if it was already on their device.

Well it was no surprise. Two something years ago Steve Jobs said that flash was created for the PC's and it had no place in the mobile market, because it uses a lot of battery and the mobile era will use touch interface and will need to consume less power. But what happened? Everyone laughed at Steve's face. because they couldn't see how apps and games can be created without flash. Then HTML5 came and developers then started offering their products to Apple showing that flash was truly not needed for creating beautiful games and apps. And now flash falls. I wish i could see everyone's face now when Steve Jobs was right about this thing as well, now we wait the fall of CD/DVD/Blu-ray drives and disks since Apple has already removed them from their laptops and have stated that this method of storing and reading media is obsolete and the era of the flashdrive is here.
