iPhone to make do without Flash?

Chris Ziegler

The latest word out of WWDC seems to be that the iPhone won't support Flash -- you know, that all-powerful web plugin that seems at times to be more freaking important than HTML itself. This comes just days after the latest iPhone commercial depicted a happy, errorless loading of the New York Times' Flash-enabled site on the handset's Safari-based browser, so we're not too sure what's going on there. For what it's worth, we figure Apple's spent way too long trumpeting the fact that the iPhone rocks a full implementation of Safari for a plugin as critical as Flash to not find its way into the device's firmware at some point -- and word has it that Apple is emphasizing the "yet" in "no Flash support yet" -- so we'll just have to wait and see what Adobe's cooking.
