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.

I completely fail to sympathise with the issues some people have with iTunes in these parts. Frankly, I don't have time or inclination to be messing about installing 3rd party software that requires (IMO) excess faffing, manual configuration and invariably causes more work down the line.

I plug my iPod or iPhone in, it syncs all my stuff in a few moments. It gives me seamless, straightforward access to enormous amounts of free, useful interesting podcasts and ItunesU. Job done.

I run on W7, it's snappy, I turned off all the updates in the background. It says up there it crashes a lot, I say I can't remember a time it ever did. It organises stuff for me so I don't even think about the file directories.

Don't use it if you don't like it, sure. I bet I am not the only one who likes the fact "it just works".
