Adobe VS Apple re Flash – coming soon…
Will post in detail when time allows. In summary: Those who have worked with or for my employer will know full well I have been promoting html 5 (and similar technologies before it) for quite a long time, in fact, we were one of the first in the world to implement dynamic real time forms creation. Recent events have (once again) vindicated the reasons behind my thinking and strategy, and whilst Adobe produced some fantastic products a while back, Apple are spot on in their explanations. It is all about technology and the end user experience, not politics between the two companies. Apple NEED Adobe, because it is inevitable they will produce a killer app for the iPad and other future multitouch devices from Apple. Likewise, Adobe need Apple as a showcase. Oops, that got a bit long for a quick post!
More soon when time allows.
Update: April 29, 2010 – Steve Jobs posts his views here at Apple.com – and it looks like my points (above) are not too different. Well there you go!
