Default Steve Jobs ignites war of words over Flash


When Steve Jobs, the Apple chief executive, demonstrated web browsing on its latest gadget – the iPad – last month, the video player on the New York Times homepage did not appear. Instead, there was a small blue icon indicating that Flash, the multimedia software made by Adobe, was not installed.

Critics seized on the absence of Flash – a crucial tool for displaying video and interactive content – as a fatal flaw of the iPad. Flash is already missing from the iPhone and iPod touch, Apple’s multi-function pocket-sized mobile devices, but its omission from the iPad, which is optimised for web browsing, would be an enormous handicap.

A war of words has since broken out between Flash’s supporters and detractors. Advocates, including Adobe, say Flash is integral to the internet and its ubiquity is a testament to its success.
