Nothing new except 'Flash performance and stability on the Mac has been a problem. ' So there is a problem!

Way not tell the whole story yakkoh?! There are problems on Mac but way? Because "Apple has also made it more difficult to build a reliable web browser plug-in than Microsoft".

Flash did in the past month make regularly crash my computer while surfing on the net. (Vista)
I mean while surfing I feared a page could contain a flash ad or intro somewhere....
Should I blame it on Microsoft ?
However, since a few weeks I do not have to restart my Computer.
So thanks Mr Jobs for putting this discussion up.
I never had this problem with Java Applets.

just another article showing that flash has no real problem (i.e. any problem that cannot be easily fixed) on the iphone os.

all the so called "technical" and "open-source" issues steve jobs raised are red herrings intended to divert attention from the real reason he banned flash, his own megalomania and short-sighted quest for more apple profits.

in the computer world, openness always wins in the end. jobs' irrational anti-developer restrictions (he banned a lot more than just flash) is the beginning of the end for the iphone os platform. soon the iphone will be relegated to a small niche market just like apple computers are.

steve jobs' self-destructive behavior guarantees android supremacy.
