David, flash is not ubiquitous so I don't know how you can call it the norm and contrary to your earlier assertion, its not growing.

Hugh, it is in the norm in the context that I've been posting about (car manufacturers, audio manufacturers, even the largest social network -- Facebook -- all its apps -- the things that bring them revenue -- are flash based)

Also if you go to various news sites outside North America - such in Japan, Singapore, malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, too many of them are unfortunately flash heavy. (nothing more stupid than a flash-based news sites... all they need are text and pics anyway)

To add to 99semaj's post, here is more information on Adobe's new "Wallaby" initiative...

With Wallaby, Adobe is clearly readying itself for a "post-Flash" era that may be ushered in with the "post-PC" era. The number of devices which either have no Flash capability or only weak support will only grow, and Adobe doesn't want to be cut out of the market completely.
