Thoughts on Flash

Following on from my recent post on the Apple-Adobe spat regarding Apple’s banning of Flash-authored applciations on iPhone OS, Steve Jobs has today published on Apple’s website his thoughts on Flash and Apple’s mobile devices.

He gives some history on the relationship between Apple and Adobe, discusses open standards, hardware versus software video decoding, security, performance and battery life.  He goes on to explain why Apple doesn’t want there to be a third party system between its platform and developers.

This is a good read for anyone interested in Apple’s position regarding Flash on iPhone OS.  It explains the issues and the basis for Apple’s decisions very clearly.
