apple and adobe flash

Apple posted a — not surprisingly — well-written essay attributed to Steve Jobs on Apple's stance on Adobe Flash that made the rounds in my department at work a few days ago. Job's missive adds a (confirming) stamp of reason regarding his company's decision to not allow Flash on Touch OS — intentionally refusing to use the official name of the OS here — devices.

And, what a perfect closer: "Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind." The thrust of this stance, as I read it: Apple remains fearlessly innovative, enough so to challenge a giant in their field (and mine) on their homepage. So long as this remains the case, I intend to continue supporting the company out of Cupertino with my wallet.
