  1. Down with the Tyrant Jobs

    Jobs is making life harder on everyone for his own personal gain. I want flash on my iPod. I paid for it. I have a right to run whatever program I want on it. Adobe better take Apple to court and win.

  2. Tilted Sideways

    Adobe customers should file a class action suit against Adobe for taking 12 years to release Cocoa versions of their Mac applications. (IMO Adobe was dragging it’s feet waiting for Apple to die, and lost that bet.)

    How dare Adobe sue Apple? It’s just Adobe trying again to wag Apple’s tail to slow innovation for Adobe’s sake.

    Technology changes. Deal with it!
