Apple's CEO Steve Jobs attacks Adobe Flash as unfit for iPhone
In a detailed offensive against the technology owned by Adobe Systems Inc., Apple's CEO Steve Jobs wrote Thursday that Adobe Flash has too many bugs, drains batteries too quickly and is too oriented to PC-oriented to work on the iPhone and iPad.

In a statement Thursday, Steve Jobs laid out his reasons for excluding Flash - the most popular vehicle for videos and games on the Internet - as of Apple ( AAPL - news - people )'s blockbuster handheld devices.

Apple has been criticized for the omission of Adobe Flash, which limits the usefulness of the iPhone. In his rebuttal, Steve Jobs said the most important reason for excluding Adobe Flash is that it puts a 3rd party between Apple and software developers. That means developers can take advantage of improvements from Apple on condition that Adobe (ADBE - news - people) chose to upgrade its own software, Steve Jobs wrote.
