Still No Flash?

Tony Karrer

One of the interesting things that was not included in the announcement of the iPad yesterday was support for Flash. But it doesn’t have Flash support.

What I Would Like to Say About HTML5 and Flash

eLearning Cyclops

There has been plenty of buzz about HTML5 and it being a "Flash killer." I think HTML5 has great potential and will be a welcomed improvement to the web, but it is still in its infancy and does not show any signs of being able to compete with Flash anytime time soon. However, if you have looked at animation and interactivity in HTML5 it does not compete with Flash at all. Maybe, maybe not, but if it does it will be quite a while before HTML5 is a true competitor for Flash.
