Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going on the offensive against Adobe’s Flash technology. He says it’s too buggy, battery-draining and PC-oriented to work on the iPhone and iPad.
In a statement Thursday, Jobs laid out his reasons for excluding Flash — the most popular vehicle for videos and games on the Internet — from Apple’s blockbuster handheld devices.
Apple has been criticized for the omission of Flash, which limits the usefulness of the iPhone. In his rebuttal, Jobs said the most important reason for excluding Flash is that it puts a third party between Apple and software developers. That means developers can take advantage of improvements from Apple only if Adobe chose to upgrade its own software, Jobs wrote.
