I came across some Apple thoughts about Flash while using blogsearch for something else. The bit that stands out
Apple has a long relationship with Adobe. In fact, we met Adobe’s founders when they were in their proverbial garage. Apple was their first big customer, adopting their Postscript language for our new Laserwriter printer. Apple invested in Adobe and owned around 20% of the company for many years. The two companies worked closely together to pioneer desktop publishing and there were many good times. Since that golden era, the companies have grown apart.

As far as I know neither Apple nor Adobe will be at IPEX. So desktop publishing only continues with Canon and Hewlett Packard. Mobile video? Do we really need this? HTML5 sounds interesting though.
