When the iPad was announced a few days ago, there was a lot of hubbub about the fact it doesn’t support Flash – finding several authoritative posts that were really casting doubt over whether this is intentional and Apple knows something we don’t, I started following this topic and, alas, today a link to Jilion pops up.

Is this the reason ADBE went from 37 a week ago to 32? Is Flash really dying? I honestly don’t know, and while I see the advantage of moving to a “standard” I also remember how long it usually takes to agree on one. If you’d like a more technical review, I found this article by Richard Leggett quite balanced and complete.
