I've been hearing some murmurings about this too - think its just
speculative based on Adobe's strong focus on PhoneGap and mobile in-browser
Flash Player getting taken down. Doubt it is the case, specifically because
of their gaming angle with Stage3D but could be wrong - and to be honest
I've been surprised by Adobe a few too many times to be confident about any
of their technology sticking around.


Its a bad week to get feedback from Adobe though, believe they all have the
week off.
