    I don't agree with the point about being old.

    Hey, why not throw out the Bible! Burn all libraries!

    I'm joking.

    Adobe could reprogram Flash and offer updates without having to rewrite all sites... Is that possible?

    I thought Steve Job's Thoughts on Flash was very well written & I learned a lot.


    (I think depending on Adobe to actually do updates was one of the problems Jobs mentioned in his article)

    Thoughts on Flash


    My favorite part was:

    “...Adobe has been painfully slow to adopt enhancements to Apple’s platforms. For example, although Mac OS X has been shipping for almost 10 years now, Adobe just adopted it fully (Cocoa) two weeks ago when they shipped CS5. Adobe was the last major third party developer to fully adopt Mac OS X.â€

    side note: As Jobs says “Mac users buy around half of Adobe’s Creative Suite products..†& while I am happy to see CS5 Design Standard & I will purchase it .... I truly wish Apple would develop a lean, mean, efficient creative suite of their own!
