What about Adobe? That’s what people who like flash videos, and games are screaming at Apple. Apple is openly non-supportive of any Flash types online, and feel that’s its a “dying” technology as Steve Jobs stated earlier this year. Company’s have been scrambling to conform to Apples strict standards and not using this dying technology. Videos are being re-formatted, advertisements are re-coded, and everyone’s waiting to see the iPad (that’s what all this craziness is for). The HTML5 community has been trying to get a piece of the action and I think we’ll be seeing more via Apple. However a little bug has pop its head up and yelled HEY!. That bug is called Google.
Google’s Chrome OS with not only support flash its built in. There is no need to update as its an intricate part of the platform. Google believes that Flash is a living technology and will continue to grow, and see’s no reason to kill it now. I wonder if that’s why Job and Schmidt had lunch to compare note on how there going to not have a monopoly and still dominate the industry (secretly). Steve Ballmer would have showed up but he was busy running around the block yelling about Microsoft. We’ll see how this plays out. It’s going to become a friendly version of Google vs Apple.

Shaken babies? For what? More money?
Who let this baby drink?
In a not so shocking find Wednesday Apple pulled the Baby Shaker application. The company offered an apology for the deeply offensive and said “mistake” to having it available for download. I e-mailed Steve Jobs and asked him how he missed this application, for which I have not received any comments back from.
Perhaps the strong language or threat of calling CPS on his “baby” (Apple) kept him from replying. This of course is is coming from the same company that has South Park episodes available for download.
Perhaps Apple has bitten off more than it can chew. They stated last year they would review every application that was submitted for content. This however does not seem to be the case. Perhaps they should outsource to a third world country. Like they do with everything else. Also like everyone else.
I think the Baby Shaker as disturbing as it was, is a necessary evil. It sets up a nice example of how freedom of speech, and the right to create something so ugly and sell it makes this an awesome county. Was the application inappropriate, and wrong yeah. This is America people. If you don’t agree think of it like this. Stop staying your shoot the Zombie games because they remind me of your great grandmothers. Your shooting your Great-grandmother and to me thats offensive. Just as shaken Babies offend you.
