The iPad-Adobe Flash Argument Concluded, Completely aka "more shit from Fast Company"

February 22, 2010 at 7:53pm by Jason Van Pelt

This is a ridiculous argument. I've written Flash apps for tablet PCs for years. You do lose the mouse over state - but that's not imperative for all flash apps, especially if you are designing FOR tablets. If anything it is a short-coming of tablets, not Flash. Are HTML hover states are any different?

Then there's multi-touch support for flash...

How can we not argue that this is a content-control issue on Apple's part? Flash isn't the answer to everything, but neither is Apple.

What a pile of tosh. I just used the new Foxtel App from Telstra on the iPhone and it has a form of hover control. I hate it, but that's not the point - it exists in multi-touch. I think I'll take Mike Chambers opinion on that when it comes to Flahs too; http://bit.ly/cXsH82
