Adobe Flash, Stop Calling Me!

Posted on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Adobe Flash! You’re like an ex-girlfriend that just won’t give up. You keep calling and asking if we can be friends, hopping for more. I don’t like you anymore Flash! I’ve moved on.

You used to have a place in my life. You did things for me that no one else at the time could. You made me feel empowered, like I could do anything and had complete control, but now you just get in the way. You’re slow, selfish and you don’t even work on my iPad. I know, I know – it’s Apples fault right. Please! Don’t blame others for your short comings. There’s a reason why they won’t include you in any of their new products. Even Microsoft has started to look the other way.

Your time has come. Adobe is ready to give you the boot. There are new and better things out there. You just don’t cut it anymore. I’m over you. Stop sending me website layouts that look like they were designed in 2004! Even if I did build them, I wouldn’t use you to do it. Besides – HTML5 is much more open minded. She even plays well with others.

I’m not saying there’s no place for you, just not with me. Maybe it’s time you moved one. We can’t be friends. Stop calling. I don’t like you!
