Adobe = bunch of douche bags.

"We see people installing Flash for uncertified devices therefore we're pulling all support and putting limits on which devices can install it from Google Play Store".

So now if you're using a device that you've installed Android to by ways of rooting the device you'll need to find a copy of flash player on some nefarious site and side load it. That'll make things more secure for sure.

Hmmm... what? They're doing this as part of their phase-out plan for Adobe Flash.

They're not changing anything that you can/can't do today, they're just not continuing development/support for the Jelly Bean OS.

Flash is still going to be around for a long time, they're putting limits on who can install the flash player as of August 15th.

Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th.'

I'm all for transitioning away from Flash but this is a crappy way of doing it.
