During an interview about the iPad, S. Jobs may have stated that Flash is among obsolete technologies, like were floppy disks (removed since first iMac), Firewire 400 (many don’t share this idea) and CD (also not true, as until we get lossless on ITMS, there hasn’t been better format than CD, except SACD – however it didn’t succeed).

Adobe then responded the same as usual, stating Flash represents 80% of videos on the web, and that HTML5 won’t be completed before years (that is false, considering the rate of its implementing in browsers, despite the spec being only 6 months old). The reality it that Flash generates high revenues through ads, and Adobe couldn’t then get anything from the iPhone market.
