Thoughts on Flash

Steve Jobs’ whole letter is a good read, but I wanted to point this out. A lot of people have pointed fingers at Apple, calling their App Store system proprietary and closed (which it is). They’ve then used that as an argument for Flash being allowed on Apple’s Touch platforms. That’s nonsense. You may not like that Apple has created a closed system, but that doesn’t make Flash any less closed. As I asked awhile ago, has Adobe ever allowed or blessed 3rd-party authoring tools? Of course not. How is their approach different than Apple’s?
