Adobe Flash not good enough for the iPhone

Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs said the iPhone won’t be using Adobe Systems’ Inc.’s popular Flash media player any time soon, saying the technology doesn’t meet his company’s performance standards for video.

Speaking at a shareholder meeting in Cupertino, Calif. on Tuesday, Jobs said the version of Flash formatted to personal computers is too slow on the iPhone while the mobile version of the media player is “is not capable of being used with the web,” according to reports from Dow Jones and technology website C-Net.

Jobs said “middle ground” was needed before the iPhone would adopt Flash.

The comments come a day before Apple is set to introduce the company’s plan for iPhone SDK, the software developers kit which will allow third-party developers to create applications that can work in conjunction with the popular handheld device.

The iPhone has been praised for its ability to show videos across the full length of the 3.5 inch device, a much larger display than most mobile phones with video capability. (link)
