I remember the Flash war: RIP Flash: Why HTML5 will finally take over video and the Web this year

The Next Web:

The HTML5 versus Flash debate has been a hot topic among Web developers for years – and even more so since Steve Jobs published his now infamous 2010 letter touting HTML5 as the future and Flash as “no longer necessary.” But whether you side with Flash or HTML5, there’s no denying that the implications of HTML5 on video and the Web are real.

I remember when Flash was the key feature that Android users used against iPhone users in the never ending “my phone is better than yours” war. Until Google removed it from Android :)

Then everyone suddenly was on the same side, and Android users had to think up something else to differentiate them (the time wasting of customizations was what they came up with).

An interesting read though, about the death of Flash.

How can that be a surprise: Facebook Paper App declining significantly


Facebook isn't sharing user or download figures, and the app has been declining significantly on the app store charts since March. On Sunday, Paper dropped out of the top 1,500 free iOS apps in the U.S. for the first time. (There is no Android version yet.)

Of course it's declining, it's not even released internationally yet, so we can't even install it if we would like to. So not so strange why really. I wish writers like this would do some research before stating something like this… but they probably think that the US is the whole world..

I'm sure Facebook is aware of why it's declining, and I am sure they will release the app internationally when it's ready.
