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.

Apple's supportive nature for H.264 must be an illusion, then. Because it's not an open standard. You just can't be against Flash because it's proprietary and support H.264 with a sane mind. You either propose a web that's fully open or you opt for choice.
"

I can't quite say that I am for or against H.264. Because things like video codecs are always going to change. But you are right... An open standard for video should be supported by Apple.
