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.

Personally, I've never felt the need for Flash on my mobile.

Really? I can't count the number of times that I came across a website that had a Flash video as part of the content. This is especially true for news and blog sites.

The funny thing is that I would still buy itunes games and movie rentals if I had Flash. It's a very convenient service and has a great library. So I'm a little insulted that Father Jobs wants to protect me from Flash content under false pretenses.

I'd also like to get iTunes off my computer at some point so I'm waiting for the phone 7 series. The Zune software is great, one of the best reasons to own a Zune actually. Too bad MS has slacked in the phone department in the last 5 years.
