Adobe has announced it will end its development of Flash for mobile devices and plans to concentrate future efforts on HTML5.

And one of the big advertising claims of Android will also go by the wayside.

HTML5 is better anyway. Adobe flash just takes too much computer resources. Every time I'm on a website that uses flash, the fans on my computer just start blasting. With HTML5, I don't have to deal with that.

Is this the reason the "Watch ESPN" app doesn't want to work ?
It always tries to download "Adobe Air" and never does, or is this something entirely different ?

Air is a completly different platform and is not going away. Apps like TweetDeck for PC, Mac, etc. run on it.

not sure how apple won? They still do not offer its customers a web feature that has been around for years and still the bulk of websites use. HTML5 will not be the norm on many sites for a good time to go. So again how Apple fanboys can see this as a win I do not know?

I guess a "Hey guys we stuck around long enough without a feature until technology changed! yay us!" When in fact even Adobe said they were moving to HTML5 over a year ago...

Huh ?

Ya I really dont understand that either. I mean its not like Flash is just going away... hundreds of thousands of sites will still be using it for a long time to come if history is any judge to how quickly the web changes.

Huh ?

For more than a year Android/Google/Carriers have pushed that only on Android can you have access to Flash sites and video. As Adobe stops further development of the platform, that push will go away.
