^ This is the way the civilizations running for centuries, a well known/recognized figure puts hand on something, people just starts believe truth “should” be that way. The evidences are not valid for emotionally weak generation and that’s why hardcore engineers are not leading big corporations; which are handled by those who themselves emotionally bonded, best example is SJ.
Dividing a Moebius strip. Make a Moebius strip… Take a strip of paper, twist it through one turn and tape one end to its other end. Then take a pair of scissors and cut the Moebius strip in two along its length, so that it falls into two separate narrower strips. Or does it?
That results unexpected! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVKrHz_uXeQ

One of the areas where our current technology / education system didn’t manage to workout is making people to realize decimal number system is just our choice, not something absolute. There are many natural beauties available if we start looking outside the number systems. For example we are using an uglier way to describe the absolute / beautiful thing PI. This is something better way still lacks complete expression due to usage of number system:
hmm… we should’t blame our fingers for not allowing to get out from primitive stages!
It is true that there will be increasing demand for Flash like implementations on HTML market.
Whoa great number, I contributed my (500,000 – 499,993) files!

+1 on everything. A slightly questionable fact is, Steve jobs was right on few facts when the letter was written. Adobe did’t prove many things as of April 2010 (almost 3 years after iPhone and before iPad release). And CS4 and CS5 releases (player 10 and again10.0 ) did’t bring much promising improvements. All the drama of 10.1, 10.2 etc happened after the letter which is not Adobe’s usual way of improving player.
VF saidThey don’t kill the desktop player, just mobile one. Expect FP 12 early next year.
Probably they now happy about the fact that no longer need to work on player 12 development. Focus on next version of Master collection release.
Yeah, they didn’t say but not difficult to guess. The mobile browsing is expanding and Flash is droped out from that (by Adobe). As a side effect, there will be less number of developers to invest time on Flash which will just lead to shrinkage of Flash implementation for desktop audience and we can see something like this on Adobe’s side:
Master Collection CS6 : Photoshop 13, Dream Weaver 12, Flash 11, EDGE 1 .0, blah blah
Master Collection CS7 : Photoshop 14, EDGE Weaver 13, Flash 11, blah blah
Master Collection CS8 : Photoshop 15, EDGE Weaver 14, blah blah
Ofcource, if the 12 player is already under development, we can expect the next version can be hard to see.
