Apple and Adobe

Dear Apple & Adobe,

The first day I got an iPad I clicked on something and got a message saying it didn’t support Adobe Flash Player?

That same message has popped up far too often since.

I don’t know what the history is between your two companies and whether it’s political, inter-personal or technical issues that are causing the problem.

I do know it’s irritating.

For the sake of your customers, could you please sort it out.

Yours in frustration,

    Hate to say it but it’s only going to get worse. Adobe is ending Flash for all mobile devices in favour of Air. Android devices can install Flash 11, but its the last version. Adobe is betting it all on HTML5 and their Air platform.

    Discounting that fact, no mobile Apple device will ever have Flash. Steve Jobs explicitly blocked it and it has become part of the cult to down play its still significant use on the web.
