Adobe doesn't have anything to do with it since they weren't sure they would release flash for iPhone anyway.
It hinders anyway the road for many developers.
I wonder where apple's balls were when the firs iPhone was released, outsold five times bu the nokia 5800, free on contract in Japan 'cause no one would buy it?
Apple's game with flash is simple: iPhone CAN'T handle FLASH (among many other things http://tiny.cc/iPhone3GS_review)
So will adobe stop developing for mac?
Hell no, adobe is one of the few that offers productivity software for mac - and since no one else ever developed for mac they have a moderate market segment with no competition.

10.1 for mobiles is still in beta and has not been released, Flash-Lite is crap and has VERY limited use.
Why should everyone who wants to use the Internet be forced to use ONE company (Adobe).

Last month there were 5 suicide attempts among their 300,000 workers.
They also make X-boxes, Zunes, Playstations, Nintendo's, Dells etc, etc, etc.
No one cares, they just want cheap stuff at the shops.

[deleted post]Speaking of hltler you have no idea how right you are.
Ability for multitasking, although limited, could make you believe apple has gone somewhat more open.
You're WRONG. The new 4.0 SDK (software developers kit) does not allow you to program apps in other languages than speciffically approved apple ones.
This completely limits the potential of the platform and the developer's will to create apps like they would like to.
Many apple employees have expressed their concern, not open however, because they're not allowed to have blogs or express their opinion:
"there are a large number of Apple employees that strongly disagree with this latest move. Any real developer would not in good conscience be able to support this. The trouble is that we will never hear their discontent because Apple employees are forbidden from blogging, posting to social networks, or other things that we at companies with an open culture take for granted"
That however is nothing compared to the cover-up of the suicide at apple's factory. Don't tell me you read apologies or mourning because, as apple officials declared, "people kill themselves for job problems all the time"! People were paid and the story buried and forgotten.
Is steve jobs a modern day hitler? you tell me!
Don't get caught up in the hype. Look as things for what they are and you would see why Nokia is a true leader and mobile device. They don't use other company mapping system like Apple or others for nokia have had their own mapping system for years as well as being able to upload videos and pictures to basically any site for years. Nokia don't follow but innovate and for that I'm happy. Even google or android have to have a device that belongs to someone else like Htc to sell and make a profit but Nokia uses it's own stuff and constantly creating more ways to connect people without us paying for it or being force into a closed control source.
That is not multi tasking and my N900 does auto correct on sms or im period. Funny how people try to bash Nokia when it's Nokia who started all this smart phone stuff period. Multi tasking is nothing new to us nokia users and with symbian you have true multi tasking not like this crap. Steve Job I believe is very arrogant and apple will start to fall soon mark my words. It's a shamde that they can't creat a new device but instead just make a newer software, if nokia or samsung or other's did that Iphone wouldn't hardly sell. Apple started out as a image company and still a image company. Nothing new about this update that most phones have had for years. It will never be near as good as the N900 which besides Android is a true open source device
Apple runs a business. Just like any business. There are business decisions and there's their reputation. Then there's the question of which should take priority, making more money or reputation. Apple products are known to be of high quality and uncompromising stability. Those qualities are all over Macs, ipods, the iphone, and now the ipad. Their good qualities are also their downfalls. To be able to have a stable device, restrictions need to be put in order. It's a business decision that prioritized quality and reputation over making more money. A lot of people understand what Apple products stand for and what they're trying to achieve. Others simply misjudge Apple being controlling and arrogant. Yes, Apple makes a lot of money, but not as much as the others, the only thing that gives Apple a financial edge is, they don't owe money.
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2010Talk to us when rest of the world who do not use the iphone has no complaints of battery life.No they don't. Individual 1/10 people with personal demands don't count.
Apples battery problem is official, it's so serious that Apple is the only brand in the world that has has battery life customer service and support.
What theu basically do when you call them or mail them is tell you how tou use your phone to save battery, how stupid is that.
Just fix the battery for god sake! Or can they?
Who hate iphones are, 10 Apr 2010Apple are a very young company in the mobile industry and they have got only 3 phones released... moreIt's not like apple use any of it's owned technology.
Umts, uma, wifi, 3g, 4g, edge, wlan, hsda, hdpsu, bluetooth, & all the other technology that nokia, sanding, cisco, semans technology, sony, microsoft, hp, dell, quallcomm, arm, intel & all the rest of companies technology that use in the iphone to make it work.
Even the name iphone it not apple it's trademark by a company in japan that apple had pay in the court battle that apple had lost.
Even the touch screen that apple use was not developed by apple it was developed by a technology company by the name of fingerworks that apple had buy to kill that technology from being used by other company.
Steve jobs is greedy that's why the cancer will kill him & he will have to leave all of that money behind.

What's the use of having a good car if you put a vespa battery in the hood and drive around with a gastank the size of a teacup?
Get real dude, stop being such a brandloyal psychophant.
I am not a "fanboy" of any brand.
I have had every brand (not LG), Blackberry, SE, Samsung, iPhone 3G, Nokia, HTC and i'm just saying you need be raalistic sometimes and give critic where it is deserved.
Wow, so what's news about this? All these supposedly "new features" should have been there from the start. It's standard in all other true smartphones, which the iPhone isn't, since you have to follow the dictates of only one company for both hardware and software. Pathetic, overhyped and overpriced as usual, only those fanbois willing to pay the Apple Tax would be interested in this "news".
My 32gb in my iphone 3gs are more than those in nokia x6 and my camera takes better pics than the x6 and n97's 5 megapixel camera thats how the iphone is great
Apple are a very young company in the mobile industry and they have got only 3 phones released since 2007 its a shame for those big companies like nokia,samsung,sony ericsson being seriously challenged by a small company like apple, that shows us how well apple is doing nokia release atleast 20 phones in one year and samsung have released more than 20 phones last year .But apple just three phones in like 4-3 years see the difference ?Nokia remain at the top by selling cheap low end phones while releasing a few high end devices which enables them to target all types of consumers .
Hate it or love it iphone caused the revolution in the mobile industry. Before iphone most touch screen devices were ugly,bulky and had poor multimedia features, most of them were considered as business devices After iphone was released and introduced its own application store then companies came in rushing releasing their own iphone wannabes like nokia released the 5800 and its symbian s60 v5 which was more of a joke if you compare it to the apple OS,then they released their ovi store.Then came in android they also released their own application store.Then we say how other companies like lg,samsung and sony ericsson,htc came in flooding the market with their full touch devices. Before nokia had tried to release their touch device the 7710 which was a great failure and led to the termination of the touch os and any future plans they had au that mean time. So for one moment lets just appreciate the iphone for introducing us to the touch screen world
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2010Shhh, multitasking kills the battery in 5 minutes. Just like flash.
Hail to His StevenessI got a very good answer from this iPhone user who i am answering to now.
"Jeez.. is this some kinda joke? Anyone?
Just asking, it's a serious question.
Apple need to have more respect for their customers!
Since when is that called multitasking?? Does Apple even know what multitasking is? This is called backgrounding in mobile phones and has been in even low-end cheap phones since 1998, it's not even remotely close to multitasking.
What planet is Apple from? Are the buyers from the same planet?
This is called multitasking
"Shhh, multitasking kills the battery in 5 minutes. Just like flash.
Hail to His Steveness"
Being a iPhone user that he is, i completely understand his point of view. You know with the iPhone having worse battery life than pretty much anything is this world that runs on batteries. That pretty much sums it up, it's ignorance, blindness and brandslavery at the same time.
It's been 3 years since the first iPhone and Apple still haven't fixed the problem, and they never will, so much for innovation when they can't even get basic stuff right.
So i agree with the comment i am answering to, putting "real" mutlistasking in iPhone would probably kill it of in 5 minutes, so it should stick to backgrounding, whereas other brands can multitask for 2-3 days without charging.
Haters and bashers are like viruses to a forum. The moment they come in, they turn the forum into a circus. That is exactly the reason why Apple restricts some things. To keep everything simple, systematic and organized. That is why the iphone os, ui and services run so smoothly, because once they allow "other" things to coming in, it would just ruin everything that they worked hard for. It's a simple logic that iphone users see, but others don't.
