In an unusual attack, Apple's (AAPL +2.3%) Steve Jobs posts a letter skewering Adobe's (ADBE -2.3%) Flash technology, saying it has "major technical drawbacks" and that the companies have "few joint interests." Apple's lack of support of the near-ubiquitous technology has drawn fire, but Jobs is pointed: "Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind."

    Two big dogs mixing it up. I'm still trying to figure out why I'm supposed to need FLASH. IPhone isn't the only smart phone without it.

    Maybe Jobs is pissed off that Adobe has an advance iPhone model?

    Adobe products are constantly begging for updates, and when they do update, the length and scope makes me wonder if they are doing more than updating. I suspect the new focus seems to be gathering information.
