I've seen a lot of people saying Adobe should kill the Creative Suite on the Mac to get back at Apple . . .
Now, you go on in your blog and point out the obvious reasons that this kind of speculation makes 0 sense,* and in my head I know it's true, but still ~ This is the stuff that nightmares are made of. Guess I'll just have to sleep with the lights on for awhile.
*OK, except that I only now know where to read you, and that should've been obvious. )
_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
There is a lot of stupid being spread across Mac forums because of this. Most of the contempt is coming from angry Flash fans, and bein fueled by old school Apple haters. While they are definitely not hunky-dory terms, I don't think Apple and Adobe are anywhere near disowning eachother.
We're just lucky the people in the forums aren't the ones running the companies.
I've been working with Adobe apps, on Macs, since . . . Since I first started using Macs. Loooong time. Apple and Adobe are both very good at what they do, they both tend to cop serious attitude, and I can't live without either one. I don't want to, either. To paraphrase a comment in one of the linked articles ~ I hate it when mom and dad fight.
Yep me tooooo
Possible the reason why Apple is spanking Adobe is because they were a Mac only shop in the early days , the same with Quark - They both turn coat and went to PCs , hence the battles because they both want to keep the PC market - Apple has its own direction and screw the 90% of PCs
Still the David and Goliath , story and really Apple is still the David

Well, both those corporate arseholes need to be taken down a notch. Both are making enemies from once-friends.
After over three decades of the internet or something like that, this great unique pipe, Apple's everything going through that iTunes nonsense is counter-evolutionary and hopefully doomed to extinction. It is an Achilles heel - Just that Apple enjoys some cachet armor for the moment - Nothing is forever.

That's only for their iProducts, the rest is still the wide open WWW.

How many billion in cash, and no debt goes a long way. I don't see any ebb in the near future. He's doing something right. The business model doesn't fit my needs much though, but it obviously does for many others.
For as much as I'm immersed in tech, except for an iPod mini for the portable music thing I have never embraced that cash cow though. I don't buy anything from the iTunes Store except a little music, I doubt I've spent $30 total, I prefer to spend my money on the full quality CD's.
I have no iPhone as I can't justify the $600+ a year more in monthly charges it would cost me. Oddly, I'm one that just uses my phone to, well, make phone calls rarely text, and watching a movie on a 2x4 screen doesn't thrill me. I'll amuse myself with people in public as opposed to looking at my crotch and laughing to myself.
There are always cheaper ways around anything iXxxx, but with Apple's model it's all in one place and seamless, sort of. I wouldn't be needed if it was totally.
But obviously many people don't feel the same as I do, and Jobs has tapped into that niche. Wish I'd have thought of it.
I don't have a problem with "open" until people try and force it down other people's throats. Free and superior = great ...free and inferior = ok, until you tell me that I need to dump my "closed" solution because it's evil.
H.264 is a good example of this. Ogg is free/open, yet inferior, but that's not stopping thousands of freetards from trying to make it "the codec" for HTML5. All they are doing is slowing crap down. Sometimes free isn't the answer.
Well Apple is no different then MS or Google or any other platform , they are just protecting their turf - from well just hacker crap developers .
iTunes = what was it before ? ? where did you go to find apps apps and music and movies ? <-- if you had to drive your car to get what you wanted , you would burn a whole gas tank driving all over the place --> iTunes now you just drive to one place to get everything , sorta like a Wall*Mart .
I really don't understand the cry babies about iTunes ? ? before to get stuff they had to visit many different places , not to mention never get stuff because they never knew it was available , just new knew it was . Plus you can sync and manage at the same time from the same app <-- whats hard about that ?
