Default Adobe drops flash for mobile

We will no longer continue to develop Flash Player in the browser to work with new mobile device configurations
With the increasing support for HTML5, this might be the nail in the coffin for Flash.

They know that Flash doesn't have a future anymore on the web, so I can imagine their decision. The future of rich animations is canvas, webGL and CSS3 animations.

Yes, I think they're scratching their heads by now.

And it seems Microsoft is going to give up on Silverlight as well

ask not for who the bell tools.
i would have thought they would have waited and watched apple for a while incase of policy change in the circumstances. I guess they know the answer already to that

I think they've done alright off of the Macromedia products. I think the real problem is Adobe management.

And speaking of which, in other news:

Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Creative Suite: New Choices for Customers

Quote:
The Adobe Creative Cloud consists of:

Services – A version of Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite for delivering interactive publications on tablets, a tier of Adobe Business Catalyst for building and managing websites, and access to cloud-based fonts for website design from our acquisition of Typekit.

With regards to upgrades, we are changing our policy for perpetual license customers. In order to qualify for upgrade pricing when CS6 releases, customers will need to be on the latest version of our software (either CS5 or CS5.5 editions). If our customers are not yet on those versions, we’re offering a 20% discount through December 31, 2011 which will qualify them for upgrade pricing when we release CS6.
So, from next year no upgrading anymore from old versions... you'll have to buy the full new release.

So, if you have DW CS4 and want to upgrade it's basically $160 (with the 20% discount) now to get to DW CS5.5 and then another $150 to $200 (just guessing) to get CS6 when it comes out next year. So, by spending $300 plus just to get to DW CS6 . That's more than halfway to licensing the whole Creative Suite through Adobe Creative Cloud and you get access to some other features like TypeKit.

I'm sure Adobe is hoping this will convince most folks to go with Creative Cloud and generate an ongoing revenue stream for them.

Another possibility is that, once people are forced to reevaluate their commitment to Adobe products, they'll start finding alternatives. I'd say it's a real opportunity for Adobe competitors and open source alternatives.

Could not agree more... HP got bumped hard on assumptions of brand loyalty and one might think a suitable poster child for the high & mighty in the cyber community.
