iPhone apocalypse. Apple is so anal about EVERYTHING. Why do they hate flash so much?

Also, if this is true why is canabalt still on the store?

Canabalt was written natively. Not cross compiled.

If you read that and http://daringfireball.net/2010/04/wh...ed_section_331 it's perfectly obvious why Apple hates Flash.

Canabalt is still on the App store because IT'S NOT IN FLASH WHEN IT'S ON THE APP STORE. Case solved.

Good. Maybe this means we will get less newgrounds crap flash games and more real games like console or PC ports that actually have depth.

Flash should just go away.

I was actually starting to dread the flood of half-assed crappy "games" we'd be getting from wannabe developers who spent half a day tinkering with a pirated copy of Flash CS5.

It's a lame move an Apple's part against Adobe, but as a customer I can't really say I mind.
