Flash evangelist tells Apple to screw itself

Apple's attitude provokes angry response.

The ongoing battle of wills between Apple and the Flash community has turned ugly, with an Adobe evangelist making scathing personal comments about the blocking of Flash on Apple hardware.

Apple has been engaged in an ongoing feud with Adobe over Flash. Steve Jobs has called Flash buggy and a CPU hog, but developers are split over the future of the platform. Now Lee Brimelow, platform evangelist at Adobe has raised the temperature with a personal blog posting.

“Speaking purely for myself, I would look to make it clear what is going through my mind at the moment. Go screw yourself Apple,” he wrote in an angry blog post.

He said that the new iPhone 4.0 SDK appears to block non-Apple-approved languages as a violation of terms. This was a “tyrannical control over developers” he said.

“The fact that Apple would make such a hostile and despicable move like this clearly shows the difference between our two companies,” he said.
