Adobe Scrapping Flash for TV, Too‎ - John Paczkowski - News - AllThingsD

I’m still looking forward to “the rest of the story” in this context; I’m not seeing how the AIR framework is the path to a Flash-free future

We believe the right approach to deliver content on televisions is through applications, not a Web browsing experience.

What’s that mean for Google TV, “which includes Flash Player 10.1 integrated directly into the Google Chrome browser delivering the full Web to consumers on their television sets”?

Who cares? Know anyone with a Google TV that actually uses it?

Didn’t think so.

So Adobe, which once hoped to make Flash the de facto multimedia platform on PCs, mobile devices and TVs, no longer sees that as a viable strategy. Its new tack: push developers to create native apps for connected TVs using the AIR framework.
