i was wondering if there hack for flash on an iphone.
no, your best chance would be a software update if it ever becomes available...
adobe sdk developers kit is the best new macs don't ship with flash why would iphones.
Um...then why did you ask if it did?
It MIGHT come with a software update later. If you need flash for your phone, Windows Mobile phones can use flash plugins I believe.
Supposedly flash would consume too much of the iphone's battery power: LAME REASONING.
Please explain why that is lame reasoning?
Its a lame excuse because if you don't want your battery to take a hit, don't go to a flash-heavy site. A properly written mobile version of flash shouldn't use any resources if you aren't decoding a flash site. We're smart enough to not use Youtube when we don't want to drain our battery; we're smart enough to manage flash usage as well.
I'm hoping it was left out in anticipation of the redesigned Flash Mobile and Apple is waiting until the SDK is out to encourage us to upgrade by offering it only in that firmware update.
Well, Apple is waiting until Adobe develop a plugin suitable for the device. They've just released a product that does h.264...you can join the dots.
The reasoning for not allowing any old crap on the iPhone is they've gone to great lengths to make the device energy efficient (ie. it's one of the design features). If an iPhone was your phone you'd appreciate good battery life.
It is my phone and I do appreciate good battery life. What I meant was that a properly written flash port should have a minimal footprint when idle, which means that the only time flash would hit your battery would be when you visited a flash site and have no impact on your battery life when on an html site. That's why I said that Apple was prob waiting on Adobe to port the new flash engine over.
We agree then. Until Adobe pull their finger out I guess we have to wait.
Like CS3 for Intel. Adobe are slow coders.
