Adobe get back at Apple

Adobe get back at Apple

Adobe co-founders Chuck Geshke and John Warnock have launched a web campaign to punt the benefits and successes of their internationally renowned Adobe PDF Reader and Flash Viewer. Although the campaign only mentions Apple once, it’s an obvious response to Apple founder, Steve Jobs’s, attack on Adobe… and it’s obvious absence on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

According to Jobs, Adobe does not feature on Apple products because of the “technology-related” issues that Adobe presents. Although the Flash products are free, they are not open source. Adobe is still in full control of their products. Not only that, Flash is unreliable, has poor security and terrible performance. According to the hardware giant Apple, most of Adobe’s Flash vids online are available in H.264 format–a more modern format that requires half the amount of battery to load and run the vids. Even more than this, Flash isn’t geared for touchscreen devices.

This contradicts what Geshke and Warnock have been saying in their online campaign, namely that Adobe is the leader in open markets. They claim that Apple’s outright rejection of their, or any open product, could fragment the internet into a closed and controlled system where creators of hardware determine which software gets used, instead of the best software, vying for its share of the market through creativity and competition.

Whatever the case, the feud between Apple and Adobe looks to reach an impasse.
