BBC NEWS | Technology | Flash moves on to smart phones

Just reading up on the news this morning and :confused:as to why Apple is showing a lack of interest in Flash Support. Surely its a fairly decent step forward - perhaps it will cause major slow down or something...

On the other hand - i did think the lack of would be a problem when i transitioned onto the 3GS - but overall its not a critical issue.

I think apple reckon that html-5 will take off before the lack of flash becomes a big issue for users....

they tend to assume stuff like that quite a lot.

Apparently flash is meant to be rubbish on all Mac-based platforms. So to make it work would need a significant rewrite of one or the other. or perhaps its all about money and licensing etc. Apple are pretty good at licensing their technologies out to others but not as good at buying into them themselves, I shudder to think how complex the YouTube contract is.
