I don't believe this to be entirely true. It is partly, but not  

First (and the biggest), Flash runs like a DOG on OS X compared to  
Windows and since the iPhone OS is OS X, the Flash player is nowhere  
near optimized for a micro device like the iPhone.

Second, the iPhone being a touch screen device as it is, the user  
interface doesn't really accommodate to things like hover states very  
easily. Since a lot of Flash based content relies on this, using these  
sites would be a true nightmare on the iPhone.

I don't wanna call anything in regards to what Adobe will do or not  
but if I was to bet, it will be a long time before we see Flash on the  

Anyways, that was just a side note... feel free to resume the  
discussion :-P
