But then all these Android paperweights wouldn't have had ANY selling points

RIM/QNX recently announced dropping Flash and moving to HTML5. HTML5 may be way to future.

Other embedded systems have ported flash. QNX for one. Are they hung out to dry?

Well, Charles, they could have saved themselves some headaches by moving away from it two years ago.... but better late than never, I guess!

You don't need flash to run YouTube on an iPhone. I think that little fact may be a trend showing that Flash isn't necessary for many of the things Adobe claims it's needed.

I think Adobe Management Team is making the right decision at the right time. Move away from Adobe Flash for mobile. Timing is everything in the business world and I think they got it right this time.

Adobe Flash has been widely adopted. Youtube uses it. Major TV stations use it. Ads on side bar, top bar use it. There isn't a 'place' you don't see Flash. It demands quite a bit of CPU power, Yet, the popularity will make switching a pain in the butt. Migration to HTML5 is inevitable. I believe Adobe will support their customers to do the migration and certainly hope all Flash-users have a seamless plan of migration.

Better late than never, way better than being saddled with an old legacy which was not optimized for the best use of available hardware. Adobe has shown they don't fear making fundamental changes for such a big company.

One of Steve Jobs' final legacies -- the forced demise of Adobe Flash. Eventually this will be seen as something that needed to happen, despite the pain it caused Adobe.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
