Apple vs Adobe, passions run high!

    The consistently developing conflict between the two companies - Adobe and Apple - is taking on new forms: if earlier Apple simply ignored flash support, mainly for financial reasons regarding licensing fees, and also promoted new functions of the HTML5 standard. Today came the response from Adobe, the developer of flash technology, in which the company advocates the free distribution of standards:


    “We believe that consumers should be able to freely access their favorite content and applications, regardless of what kind of computer, browser or device they have. suitable to their needs. No company - no matter how huge or creative - should dictate what you can create, how you will create, and what you do online.

    When markets are open, every owner of a great idea has the chance to innovate and seek new consumers. Adobe’s business philosophy is based on the premise that in the open market, the best products will win in the end, and the best way to compete is to create the best technology and innovate ahead of your competitors (here your humble servant simply wept - approx.).

    We believe that Apple, using the opposite principle, has taken a step that could undermine the next stage of the Web’s development, when mobile devices outnumber computers, and everyone can be a publisher, and content will be available everywhere and always.

    In the end, we believe that in fact the question is: “Who controls the global network?” And we are convinced that the answer is no one and everything at the same time, but certainly not one company. ”
