HAIL SATAN. I'm a bad ass...You're just an ass.

 Flash on iOS devices has been a hotly debated topic ever since the iPhone was first introduced three years ago. Apple and Adobe have not been able to resolve their differences during this time and there seems to be no end in sight. There is hope, however, and it lies with a new WebKit app called Skyfire. Itís not a perfect solution to flash on the iPhone, but it does give people access to a large number of Flash videos on the web. Unfortunately, Skyfire removed the app voluntarily soon after it was introduced.

The first five hours of Skyfireís initial release went quite well. Enthusiasm for the app was so great that it overwhelmed their serverís capacity to deliver video at a reasonable rate. In just five hours, Skyfire became the top grossing app and the third highest paid app overall. This is quite an impressive feat, to say the least.

Skyfire was pulled not for violation of terms, but because it was just too popular. This is an unprecedented event in the history of the App Store. Flash may be on its way out, according to Apple, but if the success of this app is any indication, Flash will be with us a while longer. Now, if Hulu would just get on board and not lock everyone out of their site that uses an iPhone, I would be very happy indeed.



  But still available at the Hackstore.

Skyfire was pulled because the Skyfire servers, the ones that do the actual conversion from Flash video to HTML5, couldn't keep up.  Even if you downloaded Skyfire from some other location, you couldn't use it because the computers they need to talk to were overwhelmed.  

And while Flash video may be the most popular Flash application, got to be able to watch your xtube, the real business Flash apps are not video, and skyfire will not be able to convert them.

Apple and Adobe, just need to come to terms, and Apple needs to fix the problem that the iPod only last for about 1 yr, or should I say 2 months after the warranty is up.

Ask him about Blu-Ray, USB 3.0 and the correct way to hold a cell phone and you'll wonder how he made so much money :-)
