Flash Is Dead, Declares Apple's Porn Ally

Apple has found an unlikely ally in its crusade against all things Adobe - the porn industry.

US porn baron and founder of Digital Playground, Ali Joone, has declared that Apple CEO Steve Jobs is right to say that Adobe's Flash platform has run its course as a multimedia platform.

In an interview with tech blog ConceivablyTech, Joone said the the company would stop supporting Flash as soon as desktop browsers provide full support for the new HTML 5 web standards.

Joone also added that it would be a long time before there is a demand for 3D porn, and that online video streaming is unlikely to replace Blu-Ray discs in the near future.

Although Digital Playground is still creating Flash-based content for its website, Joone said: "Mobile browsers run HTML 5 very well. Flash brings everything to a crawl and has an impact on battery life. With HTML 5, there is no reason to show our content in Flash."

"We are waiting for browsers to catch up. As soon as they are ready, we will move everything to HTML 5. It’s the next passing of the torch.”

“HTML 5 is the future,” he added.

Since last year Digital Playground has offered HTML 5-based video streaming services for smartphones.
