The Gloves Come Off in Fight Between Apple and Adobe

I love a good fight, but this is getting nasty:

Adobe: “The primary goal of Flash has always been to enable cross browser, platform and device development. However, this is the exact opposite of what Apple wants.

Apple: “Someone has it backwards, [Apple is promoting, with the iPhone and iPad, technologies that are] open and standard, while Adobe’s Flash is closed and proprietary.”
