    "We were getting tired of being trashed by Adobe in the press."

    I know my memory isn't what it used to be but wasn't all the trash talk coming from Steve Jobs (even before he wrote his "open letter") and Adobe simply responded. And as far as I can tell nothing Adobe themselves have said could be considered "trashing Apple".

    More proof, (if it were needed) that Jobs is becoming the detached moron I suspected. He really doesn't seem to understand people's desire to have flash, and why the HTML5 excuse just doesn't quite wash. I did however like the way the interviewer reacted to some of Job's answers, he obviously thought they were rather shallow too!

    Indeed, this isn't about reality, this is about good press.

    I don't know whether I've only read selected articles over the Adobe vs Apple punch up, but it seems to me that Apple were the aggressor rather than the other way around.

    Or in the civilised world, charm, charisma, bluster, exaggeration, marketing and persistence, and since I don't work for Steve Jobs, I'll add lying and blatant misrepresentation to that.

    Who cares. Sane people will see through that interview as a publicity stunt for Jobs. The fanboys will use it as a way to make an argument. I mean, half of his answers are bull****.

    edit - at the moment, I don't know which one is more evil - Google or Apple. But just watching the interview again, I have a feeling it's gonna be Apple in the future.

    Apple is more evil than google of course - it's latest stunt is to remove "desktop" apps from the app store

    Apple seem to love alienating its own developers
