Give up, fanboys, Flash isn’t going to happen

“Flash is just around the corner”, “Flash has to happen, sooner or later”, “iPhone OS 4 will have Flash”

I’m sorry, there will never be support for Flash as it currently exists. Allowing Flash would break Apple’s iron grip on iPhone/iPad/iPod applications. Anyone frustrated with the App Store could simply make a flash version of their application and bypass the whole approval process. Obviously, this couldn’t be done for 100% of the apps, but even 0.001% of the apps is more than Apple will ever allow.

And that is why Apple is never going to approve Flash for the iP(ad/od/hone) platform.
