Well it was a reply too me so I am very interested. Taco clearly stated that I am a troll then went on to say that the nexus doesn't have flash negating the fact that even that article said it will most likely be updated. Then this article comes out and now even adobe says it will be updated with flash pretty quickly. taco = troll

Aren\'t you the one trolling now?

Nexus has only 16gb of memory and no flash. Looking like I\'ll win my bet with remix by a landslide.


Taco trolling. Preapare for him to backpedal

You called me out by name 3 different times in that article. Why?

I never said ics would never get flash. I do find it funny it comes out without it. All the flash bashing trolls do on here. Looks like another half baked product by google.

16gb with no expanded memory and no option for a higher storage model. Can you imagine the trolling that would happen if iPhone came like that. Of course android fan boys have no issue with that since its google.

Half baked product by Google? What does Google have to do with ADOBE releasing a version of Flash that works with ICS?

By the way, thanks for clarifying yourself as a "flash bashing troll", it seems accurate.

the only reason i can think that trolls bash having flash on their phone at this point, is that they are mad that apple refused flash, and want everyone to join in their 2/3rds internet capable misery. Flash works quite well on android.

How long has google been working on ics? You don't think they could have worked this out with adobe already? I'd be really surprised if flash is available this year. I'm thinking Q2 next year.


Btw quit being so biased

And the trolling continues. You constantly throw out misinformation. Way more than 2/3 of the Internet is compatible with HTML5 now.

No need to lie.

lol, taco, the last report said that only about 25-30% of the TOP 100 websites are HTML5 capable. thats the major sites. So what.. u think bob with his home webpage is already converted to HTML5?

the same HTML5 that ISNT EVEN AN OFFICIAL HTML STANDARD yet?? lol

i really think u should get the 4s. I think Siri could really help your stat skills a bit.

Source? You're lying as usual. Last reports I saw from April this year said about 70% of web video is HTML5. It's now November so obviously that number is higher.

How long has apple been working on iphone 4s? And yet they release the same phone (ok they changed the notification system, they put ota updates and voice control. Quite "innovative" features, don't you think?)!

Btw quit being so biased!

70% of web video is skewed due to YouTube. In March 2010 about 40% of web videos where from YouTube which is html5. A better survey would be the % of sites that are using html5

flash is needed for the next few years until HTML5 becomes an actual standard and then is widley adopted. support for new versions mobile flash means nothing to the hundreds of millions who already have it, or are going to be getting it through android and RIM, since they will be still doing bug updates and supporting current iterations. The majority of the smartphone world is mobile flash enabled, and that percentage is only going to continue to rise for the time being.

everything else is just troll fodder.

I am in favor of FLASH - since many sites I visit require it - once everyone is on HTML5, then bye, bye FLASH - really, it is common sense - I use ANDROID FREE MOVIES a lot and it requires FLASH - wife's iphone 4S? 'Not gonna do it'

ha! I knew they would not leave us hanging!
I really want the nexus, but i can only get American phones at low prices, if i buy the european version i\'d have to pay full price.

And our carriers over here do not have CDMA so its a no-go for verizon phones.

I'm glad this is taking place. Necause if they still have long term plans on desktop, that means web designers and game developers may be slower to pick up HTML5, preferring to use something they're more familiar with.
So if anyone on a mobile device wants to access any of these sites on their phone doesnt have flash...that's a huge chunk of the internet gone.
And I would miss kongregate and other flash game sites.

You want developers to be slower in picking up a better technology? Why?

Oh taco. Where does he say he wants developers to be slower?

Let's see.

He's glad ICS will continue to support flash. Check.
He mentions that since they still have long term plans to keep flash for the desktop, that means game developers MAY be slower to pick up HTML5 since flash is still available on many devices (computers, and most Android phones).

It's not about "wanting" developers to be slower. It's about not giving a f**k how long it takes because OUR PHONES RUN FLASH.
