@kevincrossman I think a Zoolander sequal would be horrific. Nothing good would come of that.

@kevincrossman I gave up on Flickr a while back. I think it is very 2005 for me, but I haven’t found a good replacement. FB these days.

Adobe CEO says Jobs’ letter is an “extraordinary attack.” He asks what Adobe has done to deserve this. Did he not read Adobe’s blog post?

via TweetDeck

@JessNorcia Yeah, our priorities are whacked. Teachers are the new scapegoats for the problems of society. That is wrong!

via TweetDeck in reply to JessNorcia

Adobe is redefining the term Open Standard to mean Cross Platform. I can’t believe they won’t admit Flash is a closed, proprietary system.

via TweetDeck

flyosity Steve Jobs’ message is detailed & linked from Apple.com. Adobe’s response is non-technical, doesn’t address the points and is on a blog.

@Kardboard Good luck with the Canucks. I am looking forward to a Sharks/Canucks series (if my Guppies don’t choke first).

via TweetDeck in reply to Kardboard

@Kardboard Very true. At least it was better than Adobe’s, “Go screw yourself” post. Like him or not, Jobs knows how to work the crowd.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kardboard

@Kardboard It’s not really about being open or closed and Jobs states that. It is about an outdated technology that is no longer necessary.

@kevincrossman I like Apple’s response. It was so much better than, “Oh yeah, well Adobe, you suck
