Steve Jobs is in the news again for not letting iPhone and iPad support Adob Flash - the technology that powers most of the websites.

Steve Jobs thinks that Flash is not required by the developers to create graphic intensive applications for both iPhone and iPad. He also maintains that Flash was meant to be run on machines with a mouse and not the touch screen devices. He adds that Flash is a buggy software and poses security thread to the devices and also responsible for draining the battery quickly.

What's your take on this? Do you think iPhone/iPad should support Flash? Or should they look to support HTML5? 😀 Posted in: #Coffee Room

dont know if people have noticed, but flash tends to take up more cpu resources(thus draining the battery faster). HTML5 on the other hand is looking extremely promising especially when computer giants like Apple and Microsoft are aggressively pushing for it.

as of now, HTML5 does many things a flash can do and HTML5 is still under development. HTML5 uses multi core processors and video cards more efficiently and thus giving the end users a richer experience than what flash can do at the moment.

Though Steve Jobs is just trying to justify the reason for skipping flash from his devices but most of his claims are true. And not letting flash work in iphone/ipad doesn't make those devices less desirable ๐Ÿ˜€
