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.

You either want open standards web or you don't. It's a bit hypocritical to constantly push open standards and then glom on to Adobe because of a vendetta against Apple.

Flash is done. Whether you like or dislike Apple the future is HTML5, CSS3 and javascript. That is the road to take. Apple is on it. Adobe with Flash is not.

Adobe can prop Flash up as long as they want but ultimately the technology is dead.
