    Is Flash a Dying Technology

    Bloke Level 1

      I saw a post in the Dreameaver forum

      and a quote from Steve Jobs that Flash is a "Dying technology". What are you thoughts?

      Article here.

          I don't think so.  Jobs is speaking from a standpoint of "what can X do for Apple products to help consumers digest our content."  If he can sell books and mp3s without Flash, so be it.  HTML5, Javascript, etc may be able to do things that Flash is good at, but there are some things that Flash offers that you can't do nearly as well with other platforms, especially with all the workflow integration with PS and Illustrator.

            That just wishful thinking... some folks just have personal issues with Flash.
