Re: Big changes in Flash/Flex/AIR land.

I spent years looking at good ways to build databased business Apps and was sure Flex was it, because it is. I didn't see or buy into the "SmartPhones over Desktops" evolution.  While I did get hired for a small Flex project to work on last week, I am sure Tom Bray is correct in projecting a dim future for Flex work given the public perception that HTML 5 is SO much better than Flash. As Adobe has not killed the Flex product really, just the mobile, it think this reports of Flex's demise may be premature.

I have started looking at PhoneGap in Dreamweaver CS5.5 and have a successful App for iPad built with Corona, but Flex is such a good way to go in a desktop browser.

Good luck to all and thanks to Tom Bray for all his efforts in recent years.
