Walter Luh, CEO and co-founder of Ansca and former lead architect of Flash Lite at Adobe, told eWEEK: ‘It’s pretty clear that Adobe was becoming increasingly irrelevant in the mobile space. Flash just wasn’t getting traction. So they had to do something. That something was embracing HTML5 and doing what Adobe does best: create the best tools on the planet for creative professionals. The irony, of course, is one of the main reasons Adobe acquired Macromedia was because of Flash and the opportunity to play a dominant role in mobile content.’
