Adobe Fires Back on Apple's Flash Position

The lack of Adobe Flash playing capability on Apple devices is more than just annoying- it's stupid and impossible to logically justify.   Apple's Steve Jobs has repeated refused to integrate it into their systems and tried to justify it publicly.  Now Adobe's Narayen is firing back...

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has shunned Flash on mobile devices, throwing his support behind an emerging standard called HTML5. Apple is the only one of 20 smartphone makers that doesn't let users view Web sites containing animation, videos and other content created in Flash, Narayen said. Apple doesn't support Adobe's Flash in the iPhone, iPod music player or iPad tablet.
