Oh Geeze: “Adobe is fat, lazy, stupid, and slow”…so says Steve Jobs

If those accidental shots of the iPad running flash on Apple’s sight the other day created any sense of hope in your little heads, it’s best to go on ahead and chuck said hope right out the window. Shortly after the flash supporting iPad video was spied on Apple’s site, the video was removed and replaced with a blue brick displaying video indicating that flash was in fact not present. But the real knee-jerker is El Jobso response when questioned about Adobe, Adobe’s response to Apple’s resistance to include their products, and the future of the mobile internet…

Per Wired interview with Steve Jobs:

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.

Clearly Adobe and Apple have some chips on their shoulders regarding each other. On one hand, I’m glad Apple is standing up to Adobe as they pretty much hold a monopoly in the whole internet video thing with Flash. At the same time, consumers should at least have an option should they not? Perhaps acting as if it doesn’t exist at all and pushing HTML5 on the masses will get this whole Flash defection moving all the quicker no?

I’m just ready to open up to tabs with heavy amounts of video content and not have my computer come to a halt because the flash content is rapping my processor. Am I alone?
