Internet & Networking Not too long ago Adobe started a "We love Apple" campaign, as a response to Apple's continuous negative remarks about the company. With Flash 10.1 slowly but surely appearing on more and more mobile devices, it seems like the company just doesn't care about it any more. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen has said they've "moved on".

They've chosen to keep their system closed and we'd rather work with partners who are interested in working with us,

This. I mean, how difficult was for Adobe to realize this?

This is how the conversation should have played out from day one.

Adobe: We'd like flash on the iPhone
Apple: We won't allow it
Adobe: Oh. Ok.

No silly banners, no open letters (this includes Apple by the way), no ideological campaigns.

It was a business decision. Accept it and move along.
