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.

All good points regarding Apple and their ways. But, in that narrow sense, crap is crap is crap. And Flash is crap in so many ways. Because Adobe makes something that's crap and it becomes a standard and they won't do anything to really address it, force it out.

By the same token, force iTunes out. As someone suggested, make Apple break it up into smaller apps. We should all force these companies to make good stuff.
