"Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs said the iPhone won't be using Adobe Systems'
Inc.'s popular Flash media player any time soon, saying the technology
doesn't meet his company's performance standards for video. Jobs said
the version of Flash formatted to personal computers is too slow on the
iPhone while the mobile version of the media player is "is not capable
of being used with the web." The comments come a day before Apple is set
to introduce the company's plan for iPhone SDK, the software developers
kit which will allow third-party developers to create applications that
can work in conjunction with the popular handheld device."

At the CCC event last summer, Rob was hacking away on Gnash for iPhone.

How's that going? If Apple really do want some Flash support on iPhone,
maybe Gnash (which is working on the XO, IIRC) might be the way to go,
and Apple are not wholly unfamiliar with contributing to GPL projects.
