"Is QuickTime X The Missing Link For Flash On The iPhone?"http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/06/15/the-missing-link-for-flash-on-the-iphone/

The author suggests that QuickTime X supporting FLV playback is somehow an indication that the Flash Player will come to the iPhone. While I'm sure that is what many of us would like to see happen it is one of the most ridiculous statements I've heard in a long time. This is not unlike saying that because your home entertainment system supports JPEG images it'll soon run Photoshop (or because its a technology blog its authors will research what they publish for that matter).

Flash Video (FLV) is an open container format that can contain other codecs, such as H.264 and AAC for example. Since QuickTime supports playing back H.264 video, it is already able to play back FLV encoded with that particular codec.

What I find most disturbing is that the original article gets edited multiple times without a clear indication of exactly what the author has changed.
