Adobe Flash on iPhone
Despite Adobe's positive-sounding statement yesterday, CEO Shantanu Narayen clarified that he meant Flash on the iPhone would require more than just the iPhone SDK to pull off successfully. Since Flash requires a very close relationship with Safari – something Apple is normally very hesitant to allow – Narayen says it would need to work closely with Apple to develop a satisfactory implementation of Flash for the iPhone, according to CNET.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has panned both official releases of Flash: Flash Lite for mobile devices and its standard computer equivalent. According to Jobs, Flash Lite is too feature limited, while the standard Flash player is too robust for the multimedia device.
