Apple Response To Why It Has No Flash

Many Apple users of the iPhone, iPod Touch and their latest product, the iPad has been asking why Apple does not support Adobe Flash. And to those asking, here’s the answer.

An Apple representative finally clarified things during a rare public statement, responding to Adobe’s claim that Apple ties down developers to the iPhone by not letting them code in Flash, which is cross-platform.

“Someone has it backwards–it is HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and H.264 (all supported by the iPhone and iPad) that are open and standard, while Adobe’s Flash is closed and proprietary,” spokeswoman Trudy Muller said in a statement to Cnet.

Good point, we’d say. What do you think?
