Apple dislikes Flash becaused it's closed and proprietary

Posted on Friday, April 23 2010 @ 18:33:23 CEST by

Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller responds to criticisms regarding the decision to ban Flash from the company's mobile devices by calling the technology "closed and proprietary". Pretty hypocritical considering that there's little open about Apple itself.
In a statement to CNet's DeepTech, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller fired back at Adobe's Mike Chambers, who revealed this week that his company was abandoning its investment in a feature that would allow Flash applications to be ported natively to the iPhone OS. Chambers also made comments suggesting that Apple's closed system was restrictive to developers -- an allegation that caught the ire of Apple.

"Someone has it backwards -- it is HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and H.264 (all supported by the iPhone and iPad) that are open and standard, while Adobe's Flash is closed and proprietary," Apple's Miller said in the statement.
