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.

Your arguments are delusional, misleading, incorrect, biased, nonsensical, out of context, or a combination of these. Let me simplify the issue further and settle this.

Jobs wrote what he wrote to explain why there will be no Flash on Apple mobile devices. That's ALL he was commenting on and that's all that need be discussed. Discussing other non-related issues (such as "Is Apple hypocritical?") while maybe orgasmic for the likes of you and Thom, ARE SIMPLY NOT RELEVANT as they relate to what Jobs wrote. What Jobs said about Adobe and Flash was both logical and correct. Period.

In terms of whether or not Flash should be on Apple mobile devices, it doesn't matter if Apple is hypocritical (they're not), has a pact with Satan (they don't), or beat their wives (they don't). What matters is that there are many good reasons that Flash should not and will not be on Apple mobile devices. Period.

If you or Thommy want to write a new and separate post on reasons why Apple is hypocritical, go ahead, get out your hand lotion and knock yourself out. But that is a separate discussion and it won't have anything to do with whether or not Flash should be on Apple mobile devices.

The bottom line is that Jobs simply set out to explain why Flash will not be on Apple mobile devices. No matter what you think about Jobs and Apple, what Jobs wrote was absolutely correct. End of discussion.
