    It's so sad who Adobe gave up on Flash. They could have fought for it a little bit.

    • They don't give a fun.nb
    • Can't compete with a Goliath like Apple. I am amazed they bothered to keep it this long. Sad.formed
    • Leave apple out of it. At the time the iPhone was the underdog and was limited. Adobe had a chance to win.monospaced
    • It was after the first iPad when the war escalated.CyBrainX
    • lol mono…Hombre_Lobo
    • yeh its a shame. sadly apple is a much bigger tech influence than adobe.Hombre_Lobo
    • makes no sense why people let a tech company tell them what web formats are good or bad. what next, no gifs?Hombre_Lobo
    • Apple didn't though. They were just one phone among many. And EVERYONE thought they would fail.monospaced
    • Anyone and everyone else could have supported flash and kept it alive. Fact remains that flash still exists and can still be mobile.monospaced
    • Flash was already dead, Jobs only noticed it before others. I loved Flash as a dev and in 2007 I saw it was on its way out.raf
    • It was not dead before Jobs started the war. Google was behind Flash big time.CyBrainX
    • I still get frustrated just thinking about it. Flash had a lot of potential that alternatives haven't come close to matching.CyBrainX
    • matching.CyBrainX
    • It was dead, Adobe had killed it by ditching designers and trying to make it a software platform for Java programmers.raf
    • Most good Flash designers I knew never learned AS3. They put a lot of effort into learning AS2, were sick of Adobe pulling the rug.raf
    • All apple did was say their underdog phone didn't support flash. That is not a war my friend. Not even closemonospaced
    • And if Google was backing them, what the fuck went wrong?monospaced
    • What went wrong was Adobe gave up. They could have improved/adapted it like all their other software on a yearly basis.CyBrainX
