From Graham Cluley: Google has announced that it is dropping support for Adobe Flash-based online ads. From June 30, advertisers will no longer be able to uploads ads built in Flash to Google's Adwords and DoubleClick services. Instead they are being advised to use HTML5 instead. And from January 2 2017, any remaining Flash ads simply won't run on the on the Google Display Network or through DoubleClick. Somewhere Steve Jobs is smiling.
