    According to THIS ARTICLE ... the iPhone ain't gettin it!!! :D :D :D :D :D

    From the article...
    "Still a closed device and not much progress there," Adobe told us as they gleefully detailed that Flash was invading basically every other smartphone.

    That is AWESOME! ;)

    Maybe it was me but I didn't really care about not having flash when I had my iPhone. Still feel the same way about the Droid. That article touched on something that iPhone users who DO care about flash already knew.

    When the competition stops, it will be a sad day for Android and iPhone users.

    I can care less what iphone does or does not get. Just want to know the status of the droid flash.

    To note.......from a dude who pays attention to these things.... apple is looking to get a flash player but not through adobe.....idk to be honest it is hearsay and i do not have an article to post to confirm, so take it as a grain of salt.

    And Ice we will still have competition from apple since they will be coming to verizon. With at&t getting some android phone its safe to say the att iphone monopoly is over. Still keeping my droid.

    I'm not one much for peeing contests either ... but it's just nice to be able to tell your buddy (as he looks down his iPhone nose at you), "Hey, y'all got Flash yet?". :D

    With videos released straight from Adobe, I think it's a safe assumption that we'll be seeing Flash 10.1 for our DROIDs within the next 4 to 6 weeks. Maybe a lot sooner.

    Why is this awesome? I mean it would be beneficial for competition, because then that would be one less things other phones could say they had over the iPhone, thus causing more competition, and better phones.

    hulu may be blocked, its a rumor that it will be, but it will also be a pay site soon too.

    i guess there is a part of me that has pride in my phone and thinks its funny that iphone won't get it, but its the competitive part.

    there is another part that could care less cause its a lame phone

    Haha, I was directing that post in regards to saying it's awesome that the iPhone won't get flash

    Being a Flash Developer, this is priceless to me. Not only can I view the Flash changes I make to websites on my phone, I might be able to code a few standalone apps, games as well for Droid.:)

    alostpacket Over Macho Grande?

    It still baffles me as to why Steve Jobs dissed adobe. Apple would be a little no nanme that went out of business years ago like SGI if it weren't for adobe software. Photoshop and after effects carried the platform for many years.

    I don't think this is true. Adobe would Sue the pants off of apple.

    I answered that question if you had read the whole thread...

    Lighten up buddy. Breathe in, breathe out. :D I'm just having a little fun here. I can care less if iPhones get Flash or not.

    It will at least give me some fodder to rib my buddy who NEVER STOPS RAVING about his iphone.

    He refuses to even check out my Droid because I think if he did he might see what a great phone it is.

    I, myself, am STOKED about getting Flash. Just when you think this phone can't get any better...BOOM...along comes more goodies! :)

    Hulu may very well be blocked. I used to be able to watch Hulu on my Windows Mobile phone, then one day I went there and the page loads and the screen where TV show/Movie plays looks like loading and then a message comes up saying something to the effect of "the platform which you are trying to view is not supported".

    Same thing with PS3, although there is something out there to make Hulu think you are watching it on Firefox to make it go through.

    So if they have anticipated Flash on the Android platform the same message may come up once we get flash.

    And like radikal pointed out Hulu may be a pay site soon as well.

    My only desire for flash on Android is that there will be a way to disable it. 90% of the time, I don't need flash stuff loading. That's partially why I run NoScript on Firefox. I just want to be able to enable it when I need it.

    The single most important Flash element to me is, "Off."

    Not to hijack the thread, but I'm still baffled by the lack of support for animated GIF files. What gives?

    I don't understand how someone can say they are not interested in flash support in 1 sentence, and then go on to talk about gif support in the very next sentence. Please explain.
  18. Dave17

    That's a fair question actually, and one that I should've anticipated.

    I'd like animated GIF support to be able to view images like the ones that display animated weather radar from Weather Underground (Mobile) for example.

    Overall, I'd just like to retain the choice of whether I allow Flash to run in my browser. As long as I have an on-off switch, I'm cool.

    Makes sense. Thanks for the response.

    "Toggle Flash", the next cool widget coming to an Android Market near you! ;)

    Where in this topic did I reiterate my first statement to you? Maybe YOU should read the whole thread.

    Anyone know or think that orb media will play with the flash format after we get flash?

    I have been holding off to reformat my videos if I can just stream them with flash.

    The paid hulu thing has been circulating for years now. Comcast bought NBC and Comcast hates Hulu....since they claim it takes away from their cable service (of course maybe its their crappy cable service that does that!)....if Comcast is ******ed (which they seem to be) then a paid Hulu might surface. That doesn't stop someone else from starting a new service tho. ;)

    Honestly I don't care about Hulu, I just want to watch my slingbox on my droid!!!

    Yes I know it's not flash...but I want them to just release the damn viewer app already!

    Actually, many iPhone users do care about Flash since a growing proportion of the Internet utilizes it. A device without flash capability only has access to a fraction of the internet - that matters to some people

    Its like having a crippled device
