What about Adobe? That’s what people who like flash videos, and games are screaming at Apple. Apple is openly non-supportive of any Flash types online, and feel that’s its a “dying” technology as Steve Jobs stated earlier this year. Company’s have been scrambling to conform to Apples strict standards and not using this dying technology. Videos are being re-formatted, advertisements are re-coded, and everyone’s waiting to see the iPad (that’s what all this craziness is for). The HTML5 community has been trying to get a piece of the action and I think we’ll be seeing more via Apple. However a little bug has pop its head up and yelled HEY!. That bug is called Google.
Google’s Chrome OS with not only support flash its built in. There is no need to update as its an intricate part of the platform. Google believes that Flash is a living technology and will continue to grow, and see’s no reason to kill it now. I wonder if that’s why Job and Schmidt had lunch to compare note on how there going to not have a monopoly and still dominate the industry (secretly). Steve Ballmer would have showed up but he was busy running around the block yelling about Microsoft. We’ll see how this plays out. It’s going to become a friendly version of Google vs Apple.
