Steve Jobs has such great timing. While a few hundred thousand developers are getting pumped to check out Adobe’s latest and greatest software (I’m mid-install), Steve posts this very well-explained article titled “Thoughts on Flash” And like a good lawyer he makes his case pretty well. The closing argument is one I agree with too… “Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future…”
I think us Adobe fanboys can gnaw at some of the other point he makes, but should at least get behind that final statement. HTML5 really excites me, not as a replacement to Flash, but because HTML4 sucks. And like anything new and cool to us web-heads, it would be a damn shame if Adobe wasn’t involved, or even better, spearheading how HTML5 content is created. Since I’ll inevitably be teaching HTML5 one day, I would like to be using Adobe products like Dreamweaver or Flash in the process.
Nuff said on that. Who missed the Jon Stewart , Apple video.
