I don't think I've seen it put as simply as that. It makes total sense for Adobe to have just not bothered with it.

You mean, for Adobe to just say the hell with Flash for mobile devices?

If so, agreed. Not that I'm a wizard by any stretch, but it seems like HTML5 is going to cover things.

Almost certainly you'd know better than I, but still, I am inclined to think of their 99% lock-in on the desktop and to believe that they had to be thinking of that same prospect on other devices, too.

I don't often say this non-ironically, but on this, I will: all hail Steve Jobs. I think we dodged a bullet there.
