Apple The backlash is starting to show. The most recent change in Apple's iPhone developer agreement isn't going down well. The change is clearly aimed at increasing lock-in, and seems to have little to nothing to do with anything else. While individual developers are hit hard, Adobe as a whole has been hit pretty hard too, giving rise to sentiments on the web that Adobe should abandon Mac development. I have the sneaking suspicion this is exactly what Apple is aiming for.

But they could do something small, like removing Flash player and other free stuff from OSX. That would save some money and put pressure on Apple hihi.

Adobe’s sales pitch is write once, run anywhere. Dropping Flash on OS X would really restrict the validity of that. Apple’s got Adobe over a barrel, and Adobe really don’t have any moves left.

As much as I dislike Adobe, should Apple have this control over companies that provide for their platform?
Hell no.
