Jobs: Flash is a dying technology

Posted on Friday, February 19 2010 @ 15:39:29 CET by


Apple CEO Steve Jobs continues to bash Adobe's Flash technology. Jobs recently met with Wall Street Journal staff, and when asked about the iPad's lack of Flash support, he replied that Apple doesn't spend a lot of energy on old technology. In another meeting, he elaborated that he believes that Flash is a dying technology that is not only a source of security holes but also a CPU hog, and compared the lack of Flash on the iPad to the decision to drop floppy drives, ditch legacy I/O ports, and replace CCFL backlights with LEDs.
According to sources speaking to Valleywag, Jobs repeated the comments he made during a recent town hall meeting among Apple employees shortly after last month's introduction of the iPad. He reportedly told WSJ staff that Flash is buggy and crashes Macs, is a "CPU hog," and a source of "security holes." He also referred to Flash as dying technology, likening not supporting Flash on the iPad to Apple dropping support for floppy drives, ditching legacy data ports, and replacing CCFL backlighting with LEDs.
