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 have a PhD in EE, but that is neither here nor there.

You are right, I should take the opinion of some random kid on the internet at face value, and not believe my lying eyes.

Millions of customers experience the agony of iTunes, which is the worst piece of software ever written... according to people who have not written more than 10 lines of code (5 of which were "hello world" and the other 5 were to fix the mistakes of their first attempt). It is such an awful piece of software, that people keep buying more and more iPods and iPhones which depend on iTunes. Mass masochism is to blame for that, I guess. No?

3 years of using iTunes on windows, not a crash I can remember. I must be lucky I guess... should I buy some lottery tickets while I am going through such lucky strike!


iTunes made sense to me when all the iPod was was a music player. While I don't hate it and find it tolerable, there has got to be a better solution to sync your ipad/phone/touch...
