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.

...as long as you have the money to pay the hefty license fee, that is, which most project DO NOT have.

can you say the same for Flash?


Actually, yes. The specifications are all there. It's just that all non-Adobe implementations suck even more.

How good is Google's support for hardware accelerated Ogg on Android?
