Adobe Ditching Flash for Mobile Devices

I’ve been known to ruffle a few feathers of those who have deeply entrenched their core business based on Adobe Flash technology – and my opinions around Flash driven sites has caught the attention of Livebooks among other companies catering portfolio based websites to visual content creators.
The reality is, Steve Jobs was correct in his vision, Flash truly is an outdated technology and needs to be put to bed for good.
Mobile devices are the defacto platform that users acquire all sorts of information.  Flash is clunky, power hungry and for the most part, brings any mobile device to an almost complete standstill.
Bottom line is this – Transition your content to html5 based video and ajax/javascript based photo slide shows.  Whether you like it or not, the changes are happening and you need to get your portfolio house in order.  I’m going to be doing that very thing as of today for my video based website content.
‘nuff said.
