Subject Re: Attention: Alex Harui. Acquire Flash Player

html5 + JS can do more and more, but because of the compatibility issue,
Flash/Air will always have huge advantages only/when working on complex UI,
so the business model needs to change, Flash/Air should focus on complex UI
which delivers more value and productivity for professional need more than
just submitting forms or view videos.

html5 + JS is taking over only the lower end applications, which is
majority in quantity, advertise, submitting orders or controlling video
plays, but the high end value is still untouched, which is for
professionals to be productive!
