Editorial Holier-than-thou, an adjective, meaning "marked by an air of superior piety or morality". Everybody has moments in their life where they get into a "holier-than-thou" attitude, and I think Steve Jobs' open letter regarding Adobe, and Flash in particular, really fits the bill. There are three specific points I want to address to illustrate just how holier-than-thou, hypocritical, and misleading this letter really is.

Thom,

I disagree with you quite often on technical matters but I have to agree almost completely with this article and give you a "thumbs up". There is only one sentence that I have an issue with:"people still have this 1984-esque perception of Apple being the rebel"

I, actually, have the right 1984 perception of Jobs (Orwellian 1984, and I don't like it a single bit.
