Adobe Apple

Warnock & Geschke on Open Markets “In the end, we believe the question is really this: Who controls the World Wide Web? And we believe the answer is: nobody — and everybody, but certainly not a single company.”

I couldn’t agree more. It sounds like Adobe is finally embracing web standards. They finally agree Flash doesn’t have to run on everything! It’s about time they came around to realizing it… wait, what? That’s NOT what they’re saying? I’m confused.

Yes, I’m being a bit sarcastic, but that paragraph from the article says it all. Nobody controls the World Wide Web and the iPad and iPhone are not the World Wide Web, they’re simply devices that can view the web.

If Flash MUST be allowed to run on the iPhone and iPad who controls the web?

I like Adobe, I really do. They have a long history, full of great people, and products. I just don’t get the argument. It’s time to move forward. Put Flash on everything else, and focus on making best in class products.

Hey, if you don’t, someone else certainly will.
