Thoughts on Flash
You mean after years of screaming and hand-waving and belly-achin', I don't have to read another pathetic paragraph about Steve Jobs' Stalinist tendencies at crushing and humiliating patriotic, freedom-loving Flash users everywhere and their beloved blinking ads & Windows-only GPU-accelerated, 99%-dual-CPU, gale-force-fan, 45-min-battery-life-sucking whining and cheesing...?
Being in the software industry, I've never seen a more pathetic public display of "It Really Works!" tech reporting, cringe-inducing, "woe-is-me" antics with "Look Here!" vaporware, Flash-on-mobile YouTube videos.
How much farther along wouldwe be with HTML5, SVG, CSS3, & ECMAscript relating to non-desktop web design be if Adobe had been less juvenile in 2007 about Flash on mobile...?
There. I got it out, hyphens and all. ;)
