Apple & Flash: closed is a closed system

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Lots of buzz around apple’s Thoughts on why they don’t support flash.

BashFlash is more evidence of the anti-flash momentum.

And this was a funny take on “The pot calling the kettle black”

A blog called Hoopty Rides decided to see what would happen if you copied the text of the letter into your word processor and replaced the word “Adobe” with “Apple” and “Flash” with “closed.” The results are pretty funny.

One of the best paragraphs to do this to is in the section that specifically addresses Adobe's closed system. Here it is before the search and replace shenanigans:

Adobe’s Flash products are 100% proprietary. They are only available from Adobe, and Adobe has sole authority as to their future enhancement, pricing, etc. While Adobe’s Flash products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Adobe and available only from Adobe. By almost any definition, Flash is a closed system.

And after:

Apple’s closed products are 100% proprietary. They are only available from Apple, and Apple has sole authority as to their future enhancement, pricing, etc. While Apple’s closed products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Apple and available only from Apple. By almost any definition, closed is a closed system.
