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.

Whose ego is larger? Thom's or Jobs'?

Hah! I've got another one: Whose opinion is more independent? That of a respected OS fanatic who sees the big picture or that of a CEO of a big company trying to explain his business decisions?

Thom's opinion may very well be more independent.

Too bad his opinion isn't worth two shits, compared to Jobs'.
