Adobe And Apple Working To Put Flash On iPhone—Someday

Adobe’s CEO told a World Economic Forum crowd that Apple and his company are working to bring Flash to the iPhone. Unanswered is when that happens, and in what form. The Boy Genius Report blog takes a largely positive tack on Shantanu Narayen’s remarks, but wisely wonders whether Flash will arrive as a standard in-browser function for mobile Safari, or as a stand-alone app made for browsing specific sites. PCWorld offers a more downbeat take, noting the technical hurdles—processor, memory, and Apple’s needs for access rights restrictions—and a sense of “boardroom wrangling.” Most would imagine that Flash on the iPhone is a matter of when, not if—especially if Flash succeeds in pushing its Flash Lite platform onto Windows Mobile and Android phones. But let’s hear your take—do you enjoy having the web stripped of flashing, shiny doodads while you’re mobile, or does a lack of Flash cripple your browsing life? Tell us in the comments.
