    Default Comedy by Steve Jobs and Aftermaths

    Jobs' mobile devices boycott of Flash, one of the most widely used internet formats, is close to extraordinary. Even Microsoft, who has its own competitive format (Silverlight) has cooperated with Adobe in ensuring Flash runs smoothly on Windows PCs and is ported to Windows smartphones. Apple, meanwhile, has been almost the only major player to play the role of Flash obstructionist.

    Apple has its reasons. Flash on a base level provides a very real threat to Apple's lucrative App Store, one of the key things that it uses to differentiate the iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad from its competitors. If Apple adopted Flash, many of its developers could move to Flash which would free them of the restrictions of Apple's App Store approval process. And that would ultimately ruin the exclusivity of Apple's app catalog and make Apple vulnerable to handsets with superior hardware. Also, with Flash customers could simply view TV episodes from Hulu for free, rather than buy them from Apple's iTunes store.


    To try to obscure this fact, Mr. Jobs has stepped up his attacks on the format. At the WSJ meeting, he reportedly called Flash a "CPU hog" and a source of "security holes." And he smartly jabbed, "We don't spend a lot of energy on old technology."


    He then claimed that Apple was responsible for getting people to abandon a host of technologies including floppy drives (by lack of inclusion in the iMac), old data ports (including its own), CCFL-backlit LCD screens (Apple now uses LED backlighting), and, most questionably, CDs (he says CDs are dying due to Apple's iPod, iTunes Store, CD-ripping software and the "Rip, Mix, Burn" campaign). The reality distortion field seems particularly in full blast with the last claim, as there were 300 million CDs sold last year (that's 80 percent of all album sales industry-wide).


    He followed those dubious claims with another. Apple will get people to abandon Flash.
    He says it would be "trivial" for online content providers to bow to Apple's will and replace Flash content with H.264 video codecs. To an extent he may be right on this point -- the H.264+HTML5 movement is gaining momentum. However, even here Apple is trying to control what is and isn't allowed. HTML 5 can also be made to support the free Ogg Theora codecs, but Apple has tried to block that, in favor of the expensive, proprietary H.264 format, a source of a growing squabble.
    Now the comments:

    why does anyone buy crap from this tool?
    Jobs is not the tool, he is the master manipulator. It's his worshipers that are tools, and they make up the majority of Apple customers.
    It's his worshipers that are tools, and they are Apple customers.

    ...fixed it for you.
    I'm buying an iPad, but I wouldn't if it supported Flash. The iPad is advancing technology and Flash would hold it back. Flash is the past, like Windows.
    Yeah, we heard you the first time, Steve. Repeating this BS just makes me want to flush my iPhone down the toilet.
    The economy never would have collapsed if more American companies were as innovative and hard working as Apple. They're thriving in one of the worst economic periods in history without relying on a monopoly, like Microsoft and Google do.
    What is HTML 5 then?
    Meaningless, like the Internet. The App Store is the first true competitor to the Internet and it will be more successful due to its more effective business model. The Internet is first generation junk.
    Dude, your iPhone uses its connection to the INTERNET to access the App Store. Competitor? No. Just Stop.

    Gah it BAFFLES the mind!! AREN'T YOU USING THE INTERNET, considered "first generation junk", to post on DT!?
    You're right, I made a mistake. I was using the word "Internet" when what I meant was "World Wide Web" or "Web".

    The App Store is the first true competitor to the Web.

    That's much better.
    Last I checked, replacing a word with a synonym doesn't change the meaning of a sentence...
    Meaningless, like watermelons. Helicopters are the first true competitor to watermelons and will be more successful due to their more effective flight characteristics. Watermelons are first generation junk.
    It's amazing that someone as moronic as you are can manage to continue to exist.
    That's only because Steve hasn't told him to stop breathing yet
    Is there an app for that? I want it.
    I had no idea it was Apple that got me to do this. I thought I ditched floppies when USB-flash drives came out. I still haven't ditched CDs for music (maybe I'm the oddball there), but for storage CDs/DVD backup went out the door when external HDDs got really cheap and convenient.
    It's amazing that one can say CDs have been 'ditched' with examples like this CD-ripping software and the "Rip, Mix, Burn" campaign which specifically require a physical CD as a prerequisite.
    And you're forgetting the "burn" part which sort of requires a second CD.

    glad to see another person who thinks apple is nuts. :\ When steve was saying such things i was awestruct. and laughing my ¤¤¤ off . and then when i found out the OS of iPad is iphone 3.2 then it was even funnier. The thing doesnt even have a USB slot. And its even more funny that people are actually defending Steve in message boards and anywhere they can comment. I saw a lot of peculiar logics in youtube too.

    But I do think Slates have a future. Apple could have lead the industry with a product that can actually come to use. Unlike this piece of crap oversized iPhone. I have been looking around to buy a slate pc/ tablet . So far the best out there is ExoPC. If the user impressions are good after it releases in March, I'm getting it

    lol. I said iphone ui was faster then android ui. and even if i say i like iPhone better then android, it still wouldn't make me a apple and Steve jobs fan. e.g. I own an ATI GPU. but I am not an ATI fan. I am an android fan. But I recognize the weakness and strength of both android and iOS.
