Steve Jobs – Thoughts on Flash

Excerpt:

“Apple has many proprietary products too. Though the operating system for the iPhone, iPod and iPad is proprietary, we strongly believe that all standards pertaining to the web should be open. Rather than use Flash, Apple has adopted HTML5, CSS and JavaScript – all open standards. Apple’s mobile devices all ship with high performance, low power implementations of these open standards. HTML5, the new web standard that has been adopted by Apple, Google and many others, lets web developers create advanced graphics, typography, animations and transitions without relying on third party browser plug-ins (like Flash). HTML5 is completely open and controlled by a standards committee, of which Apple is a member.”

Again Apple Deny Flash!

ipad

It’s know that iPad’s won’t be able to run Flash content, again, as on iPhone, Apple decided to leave Flash away from their products.

Of course Apple should have their reasons, but I believe that the user experience will be in cause without Flash. Honestly I can’t see great use on iPad, why do you need it, if you can’t enjoy it. I’m talking about videos, games and much more Flash experiences that would make iPad a truly interesting product.

Not sure, but I believe this will be the worst product ever made by Apple, it’s heavy, large, and totally not practical to take with you. If it is to stay at home I believe everyone will prefer their laptops…

All this because of a post at Gizmodo that is generating another war on the comments about Flash usability, size, security etc etc. Take a look and share your two cents!
