Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently, Apple changed its iPhone OS developer agreement to prohibit the use of programming language other than Objective-C, C, C++, and JavaScript running in WebKit. This has the effect of pretty much pre-emptively killing Adobe's CS5 iPhone developer tools, as well as several other, similar tools. Adobe has now said it will cease development of the iPhone development tools. To make matters really interesting, Apple has actually replied directly to this news.

Bwahahahaah! Um, Adobe can't afford to do this. The tables have turned and Apple doesn't need Adobe. The converse holds however. Flash is a pile of junk. Long live HTML5!

Apple owns the platform and controls what is placed on it because they care about the user experience. They don't cater to the developer who wants to inflict some steamy pile of junk they want some bone-headed user to download. Leave that to the Windows users of the world.
