Sorry for crossposting this, but I think it is very important to note.

We will no longer continue to develop Flash Player in the browser to work with new mobile device configurations (chipset, browser, OS version, etc.) following the upcoming release of Flash Player 11.1 for Android and BlackBerry PlayBook.

Read Adobe Blog post

Adobe has announced it will no longer develop Flash for mobile devices.

I think the writing is on the wall . . . would they expect that every website designed with Flash will have to have a mobile version without Flash?

I give Flash on the desktop another year before it's dead and buried as well.

Also apparently Silverlight is not going to be developed any longer, as even MS embraces open standards.

HTML5 and Javascript is the future of the web. No more plug-ins.

Of course not, I didn't believe you the first time.

That aside, is PPK right about the "mobile web developer community" being iPhone-biased, and consequently that those developers ignore Flash simply because iPhone doesn't support it? If they had used Flash on more mobile web sites it might have put more pressure on Apply to eventually add Flash support. Then again it seems many other mobile browsers don't support Flash either...
