I wish Adobe would pull all of their software from Apple. If Dreamweaver, photoshop, Flash pro and all those web development apps were not available on Mac web developers would all switch to PC causing Apple to loose huge market share.

I think I see the bigger picture here. It has to do with Apple's new Ad developing thing in the upcoming OS4. Lots of Ads on websites are employing some sort of Flash script for instance. But now that devleopers have to use Apple's new Ad-kit, Apple will be reaping the Ad-profits. This is just my speculation.

Developers...go make droid apps...I'll see you when my contract is up and I can get one :)  One of these times Apple is gonna shoot itself in the foot.  Someday the SJ mojo will wear off of people and the light he stands in just won't be the same.

That is unfair business practice and I believe that Adobe can sue. Apple is going way too far.

My thoughts exactly - those are blatantly anti-competitive practices. And I hope Adobe sues and sets a precedent - platform providers can't discriminate on the basis of the tools used to develop the applications. It's none of their business how I develop my app, only the that resulting app meets their requirements. BTW, this new restriction  effectively bans MonoTouch as well. Also, why can't I develop an iPhone app on the PC? Certainly not because of technical reasons. It seems that just to develop something on an Apple platform you have to convert to their religion - buy their gadgets, buy their computers, buy their development tools and use their programming language. Just for comparison's sake, I can develop a WinMo app, on any OS, using any computer, with any programming language and without even owning a WinMo phone!

Also, this has nothing to do with security. All apps that run on the iPhoneOS are cripplingly sandboxed.

OK I can kinda understand Apple leaving out Flash support due to stability concerns on the iPhone, but on a tablet PC?

You know what it's really all about? If users could access Flash content on the web for free, why would they pay for the (cr)App Store version from Apple? It's all about the money for Apple...end user be damned.

It's more about Apple not having control over what Adobe does. And Apple won't tolerate that. That's really the bottom line. It's well known how much of a control freak Jobs is and its very evident in anything he touches.

iSuicide was flash based....the program developed utilizing Adobe is killed by Apple...Micheal Jackson = Steve Jobs. Old MJ/SJ > New MJ/SJ

I really hate both companies, so I'd have no problem if they go to war and blow themselves out of existence.
