    Another interesting read from the ZDnet Blogs :

    I specially liked this paragraph :

    "I'm blaming the content producers. Comedy Central and their contemporaries should either be switching over to HTML5 video, or they should put out a proper app to let users play their content. Why has this not already happened? I don't know — probably inertia on the HTML5 front and some infernal territorial rights issues in the case of the apps."

    That's the truth, content providers have to put the effort in, and move on.

    You think they would have done that sooner, with all the Apple iOS devices that have been Flash-free from conception. And all their owners, usually higher income folks, which not only forked for a more expensive device, but are likely to consume and pay for content more than us cheap skate 'Droid hackers. :)

    About time they moved on and supported HTML5.

    I knew Adobe Flash Player was removed from the Android market over a few months back and Adobe said then it was not going to update flash anymore on the Android, I think this David Meyer was out of date, for what i read.

    But thanks for the news and info.;)

    Well, I got the droid tablet to play the flash content my Ipad wouldn't. Of course the latest thing I play requires Flash 11.2 and the mobile flash only goes to 11.1. So with photon as an apple flash ap, it's back to the ipad.

    I'll always have my versions of Adobe Flash:

    It not being available in the Google Play Store is a minor inconvenience.

    Natey's got a collection of Flash apks, pretty complete too, lol. :) Well done.

    I found the link to the Adobe Archived versions, currently it showed those below (screenshot taken this week) :

    Their server is located HERE.

    Development has stopped on Android platform, though - the latest versions are 11.1.xxx, while I just got an update in Windows this morning to 11.4.something.
