Apple has every right to do whatever they want with their products, even if it's self destructive.
But Jobs' statement is complete PR BS... and he's talking down to those of us that understand technology.
Why not either keep quiet about it, or admit it's a competitive move, it's not as if everyone doesn't already know it.
New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind.
There may indeed come a time in the future when HTML5 will make Flash obsolete... But that certainly isn't the case here in the present, which is where I believe most people use their iDevices.
