  1. Yeah, but… I wonder what Adobe did to piss off Apple so much that they want to overtake every aspect of their market (Acrobat).

    1. It’s almost all consuming and a bit dirty on Apple’s part. A pile of young graphics people have invested their careers in learning Flash and other Adobe products, now find themselves in the lurch. Is the browser experience on the ipad and iphone better with no Flash? Couldn’t there be a compromise, pls? Inquiring minds want to know.

    2. Too many things to list but just three…
      1) With their big apps (Photoshop, etc), they held way back and didn’t update the apps for OSX native code. They were one of the longest holdouts.
      2) They never optimized Flash for the Mac. Flash on the Mac is unlike Flash on Windows, it’s a total resource hog.
      3) Related to #2 – Here three years after the iPhone was introduced, Adobe still doesn’t have a Flash player for mobile that isn’t a battery killer or as robust as the desktop.
      There’s very good reasons Apple doesn’t get along with Adobe – Adobe probably wouldn’t still exist if Apple hadn’t adopted Postscript for desktop publishing.

    3. Postscript License
      Font License (ATM vs TrueType)
      DPS (Display Postscript) License
      independent PDF graphic engine in Mac OS X
      Creation of Carbon and Lack of support Cocoa
      FinalCut Pro vs. Premiere
      Aperture vs. Lightroom
      iPhoto vs. Photoshop Elements
      After Effects vs. Motion

      Flash is dead technology, there
      are a lot of technology that Apple has
      killed that messed with people’s livelihood.

    4. When Steve Jobs went to Adobe ten years ago to get Adobe on board with Apple’s new OSX, Adobe basically told Jobs to take a hike. Well, he’s still hiking and it isn’t in Adobe’s direction.

  2. “selling like hotcakes”
    Amazon keeps being cute in their description of sales – What does this even mean? Are they selling like hotcakes at my local Legion pancake breakfast or like pancakes at iHop?
    Come on Amazon, cough up some numbers already.
