Even though Steve Jobs made it clearer than Avian that we would never see Adobe Flash featured on any of Apple’s future products, Google engineer Pieter Senster doesn’t see why both multimedia platforms can’t exist on the same device. As an intern, Senster pitched the idea of Swiffy as an outlet to give developers access to convert Flash SWF files into HTML5—making content available on devices without a Flash Player. Since both technologies have its strengths and weaknesses, it’s great knowing that we can have access to both on our iPad 2.
