Steve Jobs Talks Flash

Today Steve Jobs posted his thoughts on Flash. I already posted my two cents on Flash. I think all of Steve’s arguments are valid and their rationality stands in contrast to Adobe’s tantrum-like campaign. Another point is that Apple simply doesn’t want its mobile platform to be beholden to Adobe. It is a calculated business decision that certainly includes some risk. So far, it proves itself to be the right decision as the Internet seems to be slipping away from Flash. I think the killing blow would be a set of HTML 5 development tools that bring it on par, or close enough, to Flash.
