Flash dead?

There’s been a lot of rumors going about over the past few weeks about Adobe killing off Flash, and the software giant has now confirmed that Flash on mobile devices is officially dead! Instead, in an official statement they have underlined its commitment to “aggressively” contributing to the development of HTML5, however they also confirmed that they would continue work on Flash for desktops. How long will this be the case for though? I think that this could be the first step in the demise of Flash, and it probably won’t be long before we are seeing Flash completely killed off.

Is Flash dead

Flash dead?

I was thinking after uni, when I’m back out in the real world (this time for good) I might buy an iMac for design stuff in the house, reason being other than getting a lovely bit of kit, I can get a 27″ screen, with 1080p, so I can have a decent size to design things on. Last year on placement I had one of the new 27″ iMac’s to work on and it was the shizz, then when I’d come home I would have to make do with 15.2″ on my laptop, this was previously 17″, but I downsized for portability reasons due to DJing.

Old TV

Rather than splash out a couple of grand on a new iMac, I have discovered that my Samsung 32″ LED monster supports 1080p through VGA, this gives me tonnes more room on screen which I will make good use of. Yes I could have done this through HDMI, but I lost my cable, and funds are low at the minute! One thing I do need to get is a wireless keyboard and trackpad, I could use these on my laptop, but my table that the TV sits on is a bit on the small side and I don’t wanna go blind at such a young age, plus the VGA cable I have isn’t the longest, again I could buy a longer cable, but I like the idea of being able to sit up in bed with just a keyboard and trackpad and do work, its what I normally do with my laptop and I’ve gotten used to the comfort!

By the way, unfortunately the TV in the image isn’t mine, I’d need to save up for a while for that bad boy!
