Am simply voicing that which many others are holding back on relative to Apple and anti-trust. Adobe really needs to prove that their software can run on the platform. They've had ample time to do so. They can't, so they really have no legs to stand on with that kind of a claim if one has been filed.

Thanks for your reply.

I get the impression you are reading my personal views on this the wrong way around. I reported what we have heard, but think I made it fairly clear that I also don't think that Apple really warrant an investigation.

All the best,

Apple's deciding to ensure that their users are not slammed with crap in their inboxes due to ad companies data mining. What's wrong with that? Nothing. In fact, we thank them for being sensitive to this. When “G” launches their ad services you won't be so lucky. In fact you probably won't be able to dial a call or use an app without seeing an advertisement.

Everyone should stop giving Apple advice until the government comes out with something and it's really hard to see how they would since Apple is merely controlling the quality of the programming that is done on THEIR platform. It's their right.

You don't see Honda suing Toyota because they can't add their batteries to a PRIUS do you? No. You don't. Why not? Both make hybrids, both are car makers…not identical to Apple and Adobe, but then again you don't see Honda trying to push their GPS software onto Toyota either.

Adobe FLASH is substandard software that needs a ground up re-write to become more bullet proof to those angry kids out there who claim to be hackers. More like crooks.

Adobe has had 3 years to write a version of FLASH for the iphone and they have the tools to do it. Yet they've not produced anything for the public to see to bolster their case as to why Apple should even give them time at the microphone.

So why should Apple or the rest of us care? Because a core group of programmers has to learn some new data structures, and coding methods as well as how to coin a decent UI so as to create an iPhone app using C++ or Objective C or Javascript as they would on ANY OTHER PLATFORM? Get a life people. Please.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. yup I heard it right. Adobe…you know what to do. FIRE that lame CEO of yours and hire someone who will rally the company to create that which he's afraid of doing.

Adobe is a lot like PIXAR was with hardware vendors. We would use a ton of hardware, but when it came to recommending one over the other, we never did. We simply said “use the best tools that work for you for the job that you're trying to accomplish”.

Unfortunately for Adobe and UNLIKE PIXAR, Adobe's tools are NOT the best ones for creating iPhone/iPad/iTouch apps. Apple's ARE.

Nuff said! (Thanks Stan Lee)
