So Steve Jobs Was Right on Flash?

"I'm the last person on earth who wanted to believe Steve Jobs when he told Walt Mossberg at D8 that 'Flash has had its day.' I took it as nothing more than showmanship when Jobs shared his thoughts on Flash and wrote that 'Flash is closed and proprietary, has major technical drawbacks, and doesn't support touch based devices.'"

But it turns out that he has to agree with Jobs on Flash, after spending some time using, or rather trying to use, mobile Flash Player 10.1 on the Android 2.2. The author tried several sites, and came to the conclusion that it isn't ready, and really what is the point of making websites compatible? If they have to recode them for Flash, why not just do it so it is compatible with HTLM5?
