apparently stopped working on getting Flash support to Apple's iPhone and it will no longer try to change Jobs' mind.
An Adobe product manager wrote in his blog
that Apple had recently revised its iPhone developer licensing in order
to prevent developers from using certain technologies and standards,
including Adobe's Flash CS5. Adobe said that it would no longer invest
in planned flash support for Apple's iPhone and iPad platforms, but
that it would retain the ability to develop flash for the platforms in
case Apple changes its mind.
The move probably marks the end of the line for any hope of Flash
support on Apple's mobiles and considering a rather public exchange
between the two companies, it comes as no surprise. A few weeks ago
Apple CEO Steve Jobs accused Adobe of being lazy, lacking an innovative
drive and he described Flash as a CPU hog.
It appears Apple will focus on HTML5 instead, while Adobe will shift its attention to the growing Android market.
