I tried, but I just can't, I just can't read Steve Jobs raving about Flash. This guy is seriously starting to loose it, and I am very very happy he is not a politician, especially in the mid 20th century.
OK, I managed to read some more, and it is complete BS.
The H.264 standard is the worst thing ever, it's proprietary and needs royalties (except for end consumers of free video, meaning that if you charge your user to view videos on your site, you have to pay royalties; this is a deathtrap for WMs).
Flash draining batteries and not being performant? That sounds like M$ back in the days when Netscape didn't work that well anymore. I guess that when you make the OS and the hardware, it's not difficult for Flash not to work so well all of a sudden. How about Apple sits with Adobe developers and make this thing work.
Mac users buy around half of Adobe’s Creative Suite products – but beyond that there are few joint interests.
WOW, what a dirty position, what a stab in the back, I have no words. When Apple was down the drain, the only people that supported you Mr Jobs were graphic designers: newspapers, magazines, print, early web, these artists saved your company, and made it cool actually. And what did they use, Adobe products. but beyond that there are few joint interests.
Well I am happy that I have nothing to do with company, and never will have.
I don't own any of their products, and never will, but now I've also decided that I am ever mandated to design an app for the iDevice monopoly, I'll refuse.
