    Posted August 3, 2010 - 9:00 am

    In June of this year, the Adobe Flash team released version 10.1 of the Flash plugin/player. This was the version that would fix all the problems Flash had. No more bogging down of browsers. No more eating your CPU alive. Runs just as perfectly on every handheld (but the iPhone) as it does on desktops. If you had a complaint about Flash, 10.1 would fix it. In short, this was to be the Magic Unicorn release.

  • Good Job Adobe Flash Team

    Posted June 17, 2010 - 12:31 pm

    I have never been shy about bagging on the Adobe Flash team when I feel it is warranted, and heaven knows, they, or really, their evangelists and PR people give one a nigh-unending stream of rich source material. However, that does mean that when they do something well, or even noticeably better, I have an obligation to point that out as well.

    So because Steve Jobs wrote a letter, of course, John Warnock and and Chuck Geschke have to write one too. In theirs, entitled "Our thoughts on open markets", they take a rather predictable, and somewhat incorrect tact, namely that Apple deciding who can develop native applications for the iPhone that are sold through the App Store is exactly the same as Apple trying to control the web. So you get an odd muddle of a letter...
