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.

i honestly wish he would have just blown everybody off when it comes to the flash thing.. Flash is crap. it's always been crap.. I don't feel the need to have steve jobs or anybody else gratify their reasoning for omitting flash.. of course you'll get marketing, of course you'll get jobsian babble about what greatness he's doing in ridding the world of flash..

what every happened to not buying something.. if you want your battery to last 10 minutes and your phone to burst into flames on every website you look at with flash.. don't buy an iphone or an ipad. it's not rocket science guys... you aren't required to purchase products which do things that you don't like.

as a former actionscript developer and a long time iphone/ipad/imac/macbook user i'd be happy to see adobe drop flash entirely, it's crap.

Calling "crap" to the product of the work of someone sounds very disrespectful for me.

If Flash is crap, I do not kind it is more "crap" than all the Apple policies they are throwing lastly.
