I have found this to be a VERY interesting side story. I don't think the iPhone was quite as successful at literally destroying another technology. But, it seems that with the success that iPad has and will continue to have in spite of the lack of flash, and already a turn of events AGAINST flash, it is COMPLETELY realistic that Apple will actually force an industry (website, companies, etc.) to abandon flash. I mean, I can see clearly how somebody who has an iPad calls a local business who is using flash and complains that they can't view their site...and that business actually recognizing the number of people with iT/P/P and changes their website completely. I mean...I have flash on my personal site...and as soon as I can...I intend to delete the flash slide show player. It makes me wonder just how many other times in history something like this has happened. I would like to talk about this to my Communication Graphics class if I can come up with some other examples. Can anybody else think of other such significant catalysts that an entire industry stops dead in it's tracks and yields to a company's insistence that they do things their way?
