Steve Jobs Comments On Adobe & Google: Lazy & Evil

January 31, 2010

Steve Jobs met with Apple employees this week in Cupertino to discuss the iPad, answer some questions and, according to Wired, also rant about Apple's partners/competition:

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.
Evidently on fire, Jobs also gave them his sharp take on Adobe:
They are lazy, 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. 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.
I'm surprised he would put it so bluntly, but isn't he just so right?
