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.

But, on to Flash. Steve is right in the more narrow sense. Flash is crap, especially for mobile devices. And there are much better alternatives.

Of course, that didn't stop Apple from including Flash support in QuickTime for years... and they only removed that support when people started creating iMovie plugins using Flash (because QT's Flash support enabled iMovie plugins which added functionality that was otherwise only available in the Final Cut products).
