Instead, most of the proprietors of Flash-reliant websites I contacted didn’t want to talk at all.
HBO, NBC, CBS, Zynga, King, Showtime, Pandora, and Spotify–all of which require Flash on their desktop sites–declined to comment.
It was too insecure, Jobs wrote, too proprietary, too resource-intensive, too unaccommodating for a platform run by fingertips instead of mouse clicks. With that, the internet’s favorite punching bag deflates.

That's precisely what criminals are doing now, in their attempts to infect Apple Mac users with scareware.The fact that the scareware installer was signed with an Apple developer certificate is important, because it allows the malware to bypass a key defence that is built into modern versions of OS X.In an attempt to prevent malicious code from infecting computers running OS X, by default the operating system only allows you to run programs that have been downloaded from the official App Store or that have come from "identified developers." By using a valid Apple developer certificate, the scareware dupes OS X into believing that it can be trusted and the code is allowed to execute.But between now and 2020, the internet does need to figure out how to deal with the remains.It’s rude to speak ill of the dead, but since Flash is technically still in the process of dying, we can allow ourselves a moment of reflection.If you have experienced any of these, fortunately there are very easy fixes for most problems: Step 1.
