The man from Apple himself, Steve Jobs, lays out why no flash will be coming to the iPhone or the iPad.
Considering how many security updates I have to do in a year and how often it crashes, I'd love to see Adobe Flash go. I didn't like it when it was Macromedia Flash. Of course, the first widespread use of it on the Web was for seemingly long loading and boring "splash screens".
Apple, with its large market share of mobile devices may just be able to force the Flash issue. Anyway, "Flash Wars" is sure fun to follow.
