Re: This may be the final straw for Flash
Yea, that is all valid. But how do you see the death of the such an integral part of the web these days, even a slow death? There are so many objects that rely on flash like different variations of online media players, web page content representation and etc. And if we assume that Adobe "retires" Flash, it sure won't be graceful as it would keep being patched for years.

Is actual a good news. We do not have to go tough the problems coming from this tool. Most site shave moved to HTML5 anyway, it is time to get rid of it.

Steve jobs was more focused on Apple's competitive advantage and flash's resource hug problem of the flash. He did not really know all the vulnerabilities we are facing now.

Re: This may be the final straw for Flash
Flash has always been the problem, not only vulnerabilities but also the fact that it requires high level of resources to run. That is why we do not have it in iOS.

Monitoring citizens
We all know that all the countries monitor their own citizens. That is the main reason why most governments in most countries never privatize telecom industry to avoid losing control over the monitoring systems.

Here's another instance where Steve Jobs was right about something...
It's been over 5 years since Jobs went the HTML5 route with Apple products instead of Flash. Wow, it's been that long before the security issues have finally caught up with Flash...

Thanks for an insightful summary of the Hacking Team breach and its implications.

This may be the final straw for Flash
