Flash on the iPhone?

As reported by the Alley Insider, Flash is coming to the iPhone. An article posted today reads:

Flex, AIR samples migrating to Adobe Flex Cookbook

You may also request the cookbook as a standalone document commented with instructions by emailing dnickull at adobe dot com.

1. Building an Apple shaped, chrome-less application as per the photo below. This application has been updated from previous versions to be compatible with the latest build of Adobe Flex Builder 3, beta 3.

Coolest Flash site ever?

Ben Forta sent me this link. The use of Flash is really cool.
