El Jobso on blocking out Flash from iPhone platform: “We’ve been there before…sub-par results”

It’s no secret that Steve Jobs hates Flash and isn’t exactly drinking buddies with Adobe’s finest developers. The once subtle, behind the scenes battle between Apple and Adobe has of late, erupted into an all out war with both sides. Name calling, finger pointing, and all out “he said she said” tactics have been resorted to. Jobs has gone on the record several times citing his distaste for Flash in general. But a new comment over the recent changes in the iPhone developers policy concerning 3rd party compiler programs is yet another nail in the “Will Flash ever come to iPhone” coffin.

We’ve been there before, and intermediate layers between the platform and the developer ultimately produces sub-standard apps and hinders the progress of the platform

Ok, you been there before in some form or another. We got that. But after awhile, devs are going to get tired of being kicked in the face. You’re supposed to cater to devs, not push them away. At some point, Apple is going to have to face that fact or face losing developers and customers.
