Having recently been enticed by the dark side and finally having purchased an Apple product after years of pointing the finger of scorn at mitten-wearing fanbois, things like this have now started to become things I no longer don't care about.
Steve Jobs explains why Apple does not allow Adobe's Flash products on iPhones, iPods and iPads. Apparently the decision is based on technology issues and is not primarily (emphasis added) business driven to protect its App Store, as Adobe suggests. In the article, Apple's CEO talks about six Adobe issues:
* its closed system,
* its "full web" argumentation,
* its reliability, security and performance,
* its high energy consumption,
* its lack of support for touch-based devices,
* Flash's cross platform development tool.
Jobs says that while Adobe's Flash products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Adobe and available only from Adobe.
being the mostly inane ramblings of me with occasional bouts of lucidity and flashes of genius also plagiarised useful stuff
