The War On Flash

Kombo: There has been a flood of debate lately on the merits of flash and its place in the future of the internet. The dissent between Adobe and Apple over the issue of flash support on the iPhone and iPad has certainly not been a secret amongst the tech sector, but now the cold war between Adobe and Apple has finally gone mainstream.

Steve Jobs recently posted a letter essentially slamming the Adobe popular web tools set for its closed architecture and calling for the widespread adoption of the open HTML 5 standard – the next major revision of the HTML language that is the core markup language of the internet.

I'll try to ignore the hypocrisy in attacking a closed development environment like Flash when Apple's entire business model rests on the "walled garden" concept and just say this: Jobs is right.

The story is too old to be commented.
