Microsoft drives an Edge between Adobe and the web: Flash ads blocked

They had their opportunity...

Both Adobe and Macromedia.

I they had published flash as an open source player, they would own the interwebs.

But alas they were short-sighted, like many other (Blackberry comes to mind not releasing an Android phone 2 years earlier) they tried to choose fast and painless at an ATM but what they got instead was a suicide booth's "Slow and painful".

Microsoft is telling them: "You're dead, have a nice day"
