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.

careful you guys, you might get accused of being biased against apple. Apple "enthusiasts" do have a large presence online and they can drive a hell of a traffic your way if you cater to their egos .

Most of these people arent known to be rational when it comes to apple and any point of view, no matter how rational, will be seen as nothing but deep hatred on anything apple brought about from pure jealousy of how successful apple is.

does the jon steward episode from last night signifies a change on how the media sees apple?
