Back on May 1 2010 I posted this: Flashpoint

Apple:

Steve Jobs from Apple has recently explained why iPhones and iPads don’t support Flash.

And now on Nov 15 2011 Adobe have published this: Flash to focus on PC Browsing

Adobe:

“We will no longer continue to develop Flash Player in the browser to work with new mobile device configurations …

These changes will allow us to increase investment in HTML5 …”

With the rise in adoption of mobile platforms, it isn’t enough to be able to run just on desktop platforms and not mobile. Steve Jobs’ decision has certainly had an impact.

We can expect to see a lot more interest in WordPress with HTML5/jQuery.
