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.

Then the problem becomes if converting over is so easy and Adobe was just 'dragging their feet' why did it take Apple so long to convert their own programs when they are the ones who developed the APIs?

If it is easy, then Apple is in the wrong complaining about others not converting code when they have not done it themselves.

If it is hard, then Apple is in the wrong demand that others should be converting faster than them themselves have be doing it.
