Jobs Says Adobe is Lazy and Google's Don't Be Evil Mantra is Bullshit!

At a Town Hall meeting for employees following the iPad announcement, Steve Jobs had some choice words for Adobe and Google.

Wired received the following information from a person who was at the meeting....

On Google: We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them, he says. Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there’s no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.” Audience roars.

About Adobe: They are lazy, Jobs says. They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it. They don’t do anything with the approaches that Apple is taking, like Carbon. Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy, he says. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash, he says. The world is moving to HTML5.

About Flash, I honestly believe that Flash Is very Powerful and I wish my iPod Touch could handle Flash, and I'm happy that my Android Phone will get flash soon About Google, I thing their doing a great job giving Apple much needed competition, because when Apple controls the market, they get very lazy (iPhone 3GS, and 3rd Generation iPod) I like Apple, and they do great work, but I hate "The Job Dogma" (Keep selling the same thing until it doesn't sell)

I don't buy this...Jobs is not known to dis his competitors or potential partners. After all, Jobs is in bed with the both of them. Why piss off your partners?

First of all this whole idea of a Tablet running an iphone OS is bullshit! Apple says this "iPad" is something in-between a mac and an iphone. Yea Right, this is just an oversized iphone! Jobs also thinks that iPad is a great name, Holy Fuck i think he's been smoking a bit to much lately. I'm personally just going to call it the iTablet and put the whole name thing out of my head. But this whole Flash is old bullshit is annoying, like 65% of the videos on the web are running fucking flash! Flash isnt going anywhere. And let me guess, the iPad's going to be full of bullshit security so we're going to have to wait for the Dev-Team/Geohot to Jailbreak this device so we can run it like an actual fucking computer. If this iPad goes big like the iPhone did, and if something like cydia is put out on the ipad, maybe Adobe can just make a version of flash for the iPad and just release it as a Jailbroken addon...

I think your language speaks volumes about your intelligence. Nobody cares for your diatribe or what you think about what Apple calls its devices. "65% of the videos on the web are running fucking flash!" Yeah, 90% porn. Youtube is the only worthwhile medium using flash and all others link to it. Anything else is porn or advertising. Flash is a primitive plugin designed 20 years ago to allow video content playable on the web, when avi and wma was top of the tree. We've leaped ahead while Adobe sits on its laurels and a 20 year old plugin dressed up to look like Paris Hilton. If it believes in flash so much, then they should stop making it proprietary and allow it to be open source, then better code writers could fix the stupid piece of crap. If you don't like a device "to be full of bullshit security" then get something else and stop whining like a girl. Unlike Microsoft, Apple care about their devices not being hacked into remotely, or attacked by worms or viruses. Adobe flash has so many holes in it, any worthwhile 9th grade hacker could drive a truck through its security and attack any device, even a phone or tablet. I for one am grateful Apple are looking out for its consumers, and not pandering to lazy software writers. Flash is dead in the water if it doesn't care about bringing it into the 21st century. You're only as good as your last effort, so Adobe fails (one OSX update in 1 year). How the hell is technology going to progress if it doesn't continue to challenge itself. Adobe doesn't care while Apple clearly does and throws the gauntlet down. HTML5 wouldn't even be planned if Adobe didn't sit on its fat ass. Bring on HTML5, and Tom, "do you kiss your mother with that mouth?"

Maybe he should tell Hulu and like every gaming website that no one uses Flash... Im sure OS X was never buggy ether.
