Apple did not trample over Adobe. Adobe is not likely to go out of business like Netscape did. Please remember that Adobe has many other products than just Flash (e.g. Photoshop, Acrobat). The issue of MS vs. Netscape was that MS was coercing OEMs to not ship Windows PCs with anything that competed with Internet Explorer with Windows pricing. That was the abuse of MSs monopoly power. Flash is one technology of Adobe (actually acquired Macromedia Labs, which had previously acquired FutureSplash where the idea of Flash was born), and it is supported on Max OS X. But Flash is power hungry and that shortens battery life, thus making it unsuitable for the mobile arena. On my Galaxy Tab 10.1, when running Flash, battery life is considerably shorter compared using other video technology.
