It's about moving the content to better supported technologies, like HTML5, not about driving a change in hardware. With Adobe pulling support for Flash on mobile platforms and with so many people moving to mobile platforms to consume content, the content deliverers will transition away from Flash, or they will die. Amazon wants eyeballs, so they will move away from Flash.
One might think so, especially in Amazon's case. But they treat Instant Video more like a hobby for the moment. A lousy selection. Apple did win the war against Adobe, but I still really find flash indispensable for now and the next 2-3 years, which is why I am quite pleased with the MS surface and hope for more products along that line. They will give me full desktop functionality and full mobility. No more restrictions and no need to wait for apps.

Which is rather strange. Amazon Instant Video, and the Hulu Website (not Hulu plus) work fine on my Touchpad running ICS 4.0.4. --- and they did on 4.0.3. I still use a lot of websites with flash and I am not having any problems with flash videos at all. So unless there is a way to get Flash running on 4.1 I would rather not upgrade and not get a device with the new version.

Perhaps Flash games won't work, I never tried those, but video runs great. Even when using a VPN service.

Check out some threads on XDA, a bunch of people on there already have devices from I/O. So far it seems that Flash works pretty good on the Nexus 7, just download it before August 15 (That's when Adobe pulls it from the Market).

The K Fire is NOT pure Android, Amazon has modified the stock Android pretty heavily from what I can see.

Flash apparently works with Jelly Bean on the N7, at least that's what I've heard over at XDA.

One user says he can play AIV on his Galaxy Nexus perfectly running 4.1.

Okay, I bought one because of the Tegra 3 (5 core) processor. It runs the low power core for "normal" apps, and seamlessly switches to the powerful quad core for demanding apps. But I will surely miss the missing SD card slot.

There are at least five people currently working on the 4.1 port for the Kindle Fire at XDA. Seeing how fast they're working, and how similar it is to ICS, we should have a ROM in people's hands maybe tonight.

The Nexus 7 isn't even shipping yet.

With that 4.1 port, I may have to get one of those $60 used kindle fires on the local craigslist...

Hopefully JB will work better on the KF than ICS does.

So, I take it that the UIs that you designed are superior to what you are criticizing then, right?

You are implying that UIs only need to appeal to UI designers?
Taste in clothes can only be had by fashion designers?
Books are only to be appreciated by authors?

If he said the UI was poorly coded, you might have a point.
