Adobe vs. Apple, Flash vs. iPhone

于 Adobe 和 Apple 就 iPhone 平台对Flash的支持的争论,已经成为 IT 界的一个引人关注的话题。Apple 的 CEO 公开发表文章,攻击 Adobe 的 Flash 技术陈旧,对资源消耗太高,不适合移动设备,同时,Adobe 的人也没闲着,逐一对 Apple 的指责进行了还击。

其实,Steve Jobs 的心情我完全可以理解,毕竟 Apple 创造了 iPhone 的神话,他不希望别人动自己的奶酪,如果 iPhone 上运行的应用都是 Flash 的,将极大破坏 Steve Jobs 为 iPhone 的生态环境,最终,使得 iPhone 变成一种又炫又酷的硬件平台,而 Apple 也会沦为生产这种又炫又酷的硬件的制造商。换了谁也不会答应呀!

可是,Steve 的做法似乎有些不太光明磊落,这也是为什么遭到 Adobe 和很多网友攻击的一个原因。

其实,对于一种技术的选择和甄别,用户才是最有权威的,毕竟”实践是检验真理的唯一标准”。如果 Flash 真的是一种落后的技术,用户会毫不犹豫地作出选择,Steve Jobs 似乎完全没有必要与俎代庖。互联网本身就是一个平台,在这个平台上,各种技术和产品都可以找到它们的定位点,所以在互联网上才有个一个著名的理论—-长尾理论,而 Steve Jobs 的决定,毫无疑问地一刀斩断了这条 iPhone 上的长尾。

于是,要赢得这场战役,就要赢得用户,也就是说,用户和市场才是最终的裁判,关键就是看 Adobe 和 Apple 谁可以提供给用户喜欢又必需的应用了。

其实,我觉得 Adobe 大可不必如此强烈地反对 Apple 和 Steve Jobs 的新政,其实不能在 iPhone 上运行 Flash,恰恰是 Apple 的损失。如果你是 iPhone 的用户,看着别人都在非 iPhone 的手机上看着自己喜欢的视频或者玩儿着自己酷爱的 Flash 游戏,你是会怨恨 Adobe 呢,还是会怨恨 Apple?如果到那个时候,你还会考虑坚持用 iPhone 吗?

    市场和商业利益决定一切,毕竟抢走了App Store这块大蛋糕Steve Jobs是肯定不会接受的。他担心的还是developer都去开发flash应用,进而形成iPhone Flash App store吧。所以Java和Flash这样的框架型产品都进不了iPhone。当然用户也有很大的损失,不过暂时被App Store那些眼花缭乱的应用所掩盖了。不知道Adobe是否可以出个越狱版的flash插件用 这样也能满足一些人在iPhone上使用flash的需求了。。

  5. Very informative post. Thanks for taking the time to share your view with us.

  6. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  7. You sure do know what youre talking about. Man, this blog is just great! I cant wait to read more of what youve got to say. Im really happy that I came across this when I did because I was really starting to get bored with the whole blogging scene. Youve turned me around, man!

    Good luck getting people behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating points, youre going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what weve already heard. What are trying to say here? What do you want us to think? It seems like you cant really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, thats just my opinion.

  10. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  11. I feel like you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what theyre doing.

  12. I really enjoy reading your blog. Great work and keep it up.

  13. Very informative post. Thanks for taking the time to share your view with us.
