I was searching through the internet trying to find out why the i-pod, pad, and phone all do not support flash.

This article shows the authors theory and how this problem will resolve. Pretty interesting Click here for article

Yeah, ushering in HTML 5 and letting Flash become extinct is clearly Apple's strategy. I'm all for the "plug-in free" approach, at the very least it will eliminate waiting to download them, and all the periodic updates. I want to see that lolcat video NOW dammit!

I don't think Apple's decision to relove flash support here is purely based on Adobe alone. We all know Apple has a history or moving forward in technology and leaving the old, useless or redundant behind. They did this when they discontinued the use of floppy drives in their Macs, and the same when they left PPC and the same again when they moved to OS X from OS 9.

Be is hard or software or even just pieces of code. And I think they thought flash is one of these things Apple and now also Google think is redundant (cause of Adobe's refual to fix it properly).

And really when you have 2 out of 3 of the biggest names in the internet business (Safari and Google) saying no to flash, then Adobe needs to be worried. And as you said above when Modzilla and their Firefox goes html5 as well then flash will really be dead.

And no flash is not bad. It just means the devs have to make non-flash versions of whatever they are doing now. And they will. And some already are doing this now.
