Apple “winning the war on Flash”

Apple “winning the war on Flash” http://bit.ly/9rUGfo More important to be on the iPad than use Flash – who’d have thought?

In discussions with a friend after the iPad announcement, I predicted that the appeal of having a site on the iPad (and the iPhone/iPod Touch before it) would over-rule the “no flash” browsing. Turns out I was right as most major flash-based sites have created iPad friendly versions using HTML 5.

Flash isn’t going to disappear for a while but Apple is using the popularity of it’s portable computing devices to make it less appealing. If you’re going to make a Flash-free HTML5 site anyway to reach those devices, why stick with the Flash site?
