Apple AND Adobe: both companies are creeping me out
Adobe posted this open Letter to Apple :
We publish the specifications for Flash — meaning anyone can make their own Flash player. Yet, Adobe Flash technology remains the market leader because of the constant creativity and technical innovation of our employees.
We believe that Apple, by taking the opposite approach, has taken a step that could undermine this next chapter of the web — the chapter in which mobile devices outnumber computers, any individual can be a publisher, and content is accessed anywhere and at any time.
In the end, we believe the question is really this: Who controls the World Wide Web? And we believe the answer is: nobody — and everybody, but certainly not a single company.
whats so funny to me is adobes’ stance:one that hints at some sort of free opensource style market web economy- which they participate in:
really? Adobe you just royally f-ed most of your loyal customers when you released your ltest and greatest software contributions, at the insane upgrade price of a mere 899 dollars.
i just feel way – ok about borrowing your software, on a long term basis….and letting **others know that their trial downloads can be extended.
i mean if you develop and design your products for this uncontrolled worldwideweb, then everybody’s should have access to your products ..right?
**by others i mean : those of us who happen to be trying to live and work on earth. ..Not totally insane people pasting childish-chiding ads in newspapers telling everyone about their moral awesomeness</p>
disappointing behaviour, from adobe and apple-
im just saying
