re: Adobe throwing in the towel on Flash for iPhone

What Apple needs to do is help content creators convert or create iPhone friendly browsing experiences. A major iPhone/iPad limitation is not enabling iTunes purchases from popular sites like blip.fm as jumping points while broadcasting (DJ-style) song lists, in addition to listening and sampling music from other DJs. I love my iPhone and my blip.fm and want them to inter-operate. I am sure there are a lot of other similar frustrating user experiences. I agree with Navelpluis that an open-source equivalent would be handy to possibly solve this issue.

Well, I'm not crazy about Apple's approach. However, their shareholders probably agree with the approach. That being said, most flash based applications that I have run tend to be pretty stodgy. I'm not sure if it's flash's problem though... No talk of Windows mobile!?

Let me list some 'hidden features' of Adobe Flash: * Memory leaks * Security issues: Apple cannot secure Flash * It needs too much processing power * System slowdown, small footprint devices can never support flash properly. Flash is of no use to noone: I hope someone will make an open source version for flash functionality (if you really want it or need it...)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
