@bryanrieger @cennydd Adobe is still pushing AIR and flash CS5 to native compiler, they're only dropping the browser plugin.

@bryanrieger I'll try to write up the Amazon Silk browser talk and post it somewhere - @jonjenk covered interesting stuff on how it works

@bryanrieger I just heard about this, all Adobe is doing is killing Flash for a huge current and larger future market.
11/9/2011 7:49 AM
@bryanrieger and that is something very different to saying that the Flash era is over. The browser-flash-game industry is too big to fail.

@bryanrieger @mariamdh problem for #Adobe is they need to continue to sell tools, but most mobile dev tools are free #iOS #WP7 #Android

@bryanrieger Totally serious. We're explaining (gently) why it might not be a terribly smart move. It's a complete flashback.

@bryanrieger @mariamdh waiting to hear what Adobe has to tell devs and partners tmrw who've invested teams and $ in mobile Flash platforms

@bryanrieger @brendandawes Gone? I wish - we just had a project come in for someone wanting their site redone in Flash (c.1999 style too)

NYT on the evolution of flash sale sites: http://nyti.ms/jRPH8b "These are e-commerce, marketing and media platforms rolled into one."

How powerful is mobile? One such example: Facebook is moving to design for mobile first...then to other platforms or channels. #AAdigital

There were two mobile platforms that everyone liked and no one used - WebOS and Windows Phone. Now there's one.

Facebook says HTML5 is their future platform because maintaining seven mobile versions is too hard http://on.wsj.com/evbL8Z #html5

About time: Facebook CTO Bret Taylor says mobile is the primary focus for its platform this year. http://bit.ly/eeUtGX

"Cross platform has never worked.", reads a comment on a website written in a web browser from anywhere in the world on any device.

It's hard to question the value proposition of Flash for mobile dev when you see a pic like this: http://t.co/Y6h42w3 (via @egnaro)

So ... 10 games on Android, 4 on Playbook, 3 on iOS ... am I mobile developer yet? Did someone say Flash is dead? #allMadeWithFlash

#Flash & #HTML5 performance tests on mobile and tablets: http://bit.ly/jVWsCp The skinny is that Flash is 2X faster on average.

Everyone complaining that iPad 3 "still won't have Flash" must have missed the news that Adobe killed Flash for mobile: http://t.co/GAvRu6wR

80% of mobile video viewing is done on iOS devices. Lack of Flash availability apparently doesn't matter: http://t.co/ZgvtnuY /via @viticci

Restaurants: 97% of visitors to your website just want the address and phone no, not a Flash animation of a bloody artichoke.

Wow, the website for your bar sure is supercool with all that Flash and graphics. Too bad it doesn't have the FUCKING HOURS YOU'RE OPEN.
6/17/2011 7:45 PM
About 8% of websites now use webfonts, quadrupled last year. On the other hand, Flash is hardly declining. http://t.co/v1G4pv33

A portfolio website done entirely in Flash is the graphic design equivalent of a vuvuzela.
8/12/2010 5:32 PM
If your website is made entirely in Flash it's time to sack your web designers, unless of course you forced them to; in that case, resign.

WTF @O2‽ You're sending my mobile number to EVERY WEBSITE I VISIT! Check your HTTP header: http://t.co/h6MZ6JYH Info: http://t.co/chFepocG
