Welcome to Embeddedflash.com. Its 2014 and the landscape in multimedia world has changed quite a bit HTML5 standard is complete and Flash is no longer existent on mobile. I've also taken a short break from blog but I hope to restart it in the near future. I am no longer functioning as Adobe's Scaling Partner and looking for new opportunities.
